Greyhound Chicago Stops – Bus Guide

Chicago has been a major travel hub for the United States since the beginning of the twentieth century. The Greyhound Chicago Station was the nation’s largest independently operated bus depot for almost 40 years and offered more available routes to U.S. cities than any other bus line. In the early 1900’s Chicago was home to six major railroad stations, the most in the country at that time. Additionally, from the 1930’s until 1998 O’Hare International Airport was named the World’s Busiest Airport. This is primarily because it had the greatest amount of direct flights available to all major cities in America.



If you’re planning to stay in Chicago make sure to check out our guide to the best Chicago Hostels and for ideas on cool places to stay and fun things to do.
