Hi eyeronics, Is there a possibility that you can call your hotel clerk to find out about the Metra? I still have not ironed out the details but you can take a bus to the Metra and take the netra to your hotel area, There you should be able to get a ride which will be much cheaper. That is what we are planning to do. I just have not ironed out the details. I did go on the metra website a while ago and it really is much cheaper. its just making sure you know how to get from point A (bus station) to point B (train station) and then C (hotel). Its a little more work but I think we will save money. Our flight arrives at 10:10 am Thursday so maybe I can call you from my cell phone with tips after we go through the process. I hope this helps. Let me know what you find out. Cathie
