The Brown Line will not get you to Wicker Park, your best bet is the Blue Line to Damen. The North Ave bus will also get you there.
Thanks, prelude91! It sounds like part of the advice was on target at least.

I know I said that, but I said it was a joke in my very next post.

When I read that MARTA didn't cross the Perimeter, all I could do was laugh. These non-resident experts will make you think you're crazy.

I understand why you were annoyed by my initial post, I really didn't mean anything by it.

And as I mentioned, as I looked at more statistics, I was more impressed with Atlanta's ridership per mile, that's gotta count for something, right!?

I have been on both CTA and MARTA and do not see CTA as being any dirtier than MARTA. They both have their dirty and clean stations and trains. I do have to give points to Chicago on coverage though. When you add the number of rail lines as well as commuter rail to the suburbs they really have an impressive system. (Now if only metro Atlanta and Georgia politicians could make some more headway in that area).

Amen and Hallelujah to that statement.

All I have to say is that I give mad props to both MARTA and CTA, because they are actually connected to their airports. Not to many other systems in the US can say that. I was a business traveler for a long time, so this is a big thing for me

That's the spirit. Who cares if it is crappier, noisier or dirtier. Chi-town system is old school! Yay!
