Village residents and business professionals who regularly travel the 35 miles to Chicago’s Loop for business or cultural activities are only a 40-minute commute via the Wheaton, Bartlett or Hanover Park Metra commuter train stations. The RTA’s Suburban PACE transportation system provides convenient shuttle service to area residents commuting to local train stations, shopping centers, colleges and hospitals. Local commuters will find an easy toll-free access to I-290 (Eisenhower Expy.) by traveling east on North Avenue or Army Trail Road to I-355 North. The Elgin-O’Hare Expressway (Illinois Route 390) provides convenient commuter access to the northwest suburbs, reached by traveling north on Gary Avenue past Lake Street. Carol Stream residents and businesses this year celebrate completion of the state’s Elgin-O’Hare Western Access Project, offering opportunities for enhanced economic development and travel performance throughout the region, and providing new western access to busy nearby O’Hare International Airport.
