RE: chicago Ohare to saint louis

Hmmmn, well, being an American, I would rent a car ;-) ...I dunno about buses.

Note, however, that Amtrak ( does run between Chicago and St. Louis. I put in some random dates in September and got a $62 fare from Chicago to St. Louis, and a $22 fare for the return trip three weeks later...well, it might bear looking into, since I believe that train travel is almost always more comfortable than the bus.

It looks like American Airlines and United both offer $135 round trip fares, of course, depending on a lot of factors...

You might want to consider flying. Southwest Airlines has a round-trip airfare of $78 plus taxes. That's going to behard to beat. The only difficulty is that Southwest flies out of Chicago's Midway airport. But I think it'd be a lot easier to do the airport shuffle than to have to worry about getting to the Greyhound Station.

Do the airport shuffle, take the Blue line from O'Hare to the loop and transfer to the Orange line. whole trip should take with waiting etc, less than an hour and a half. Southwest is the best way to go, you can book on line at

First, to answer your question with a question;
At which end do you wish to catch a Greyhound?
If it is in StL, you can take the MetroLink from the airport to downtown to catch a Greyhound. Here is the url for MetroLink

Here is a blurb from Canada America Travel Specialists (don't ya just love Google?)
Rail Transit: St. Louis Metrolink offers direct service from Lambert Airport to downtown St. Louis. Board the Metrolink from either the Main or East terminal (near exits MT2 or ET2) and exit at Convention Center station. Connect via bus or taxicab to the Greyhound terminal, located 1/2 mile west at 1450 N. 13th Street. Call (314) 231-2345 for more information.

Unfortunately as mentioned before Midway is the airport for SWA in Chicago. You can sometimes find $49 fares each way on SWA Stl to Chicago.

The Amtrak ride is a nice one. I have taken it both ways and enjoyed it. I have never found Amtrak fares to be competitive with SWA though and if you go Amtrak check to see if there are any delays for construction expected. My last trip was 11 hours. (2 hr wait for late arriving train and 9 hr trip to chicago because of high speed rail construction.) Fortunately we were in no hurry and enjoyed the slowtrip through corn and soybean fields and off the path little towns. They had to keep the speeds down as these detour tracks had not been used for Amtrak before. I have not heard if the high speed rail had been completed or not.

Travel Tips for Saint Louis

by bramej

St. Louis Arch. This was definitely one of the most interesting sites in St. Louis. My fondest memory in St. Louis was taking my son to the Bigfoot Museum. He had the most fun. We took pictures of him sitting in the Bigfoot Trucks and the trucks tires.

Downtown - US Court House/Custom House (1934)

by yooperprof

It's interesting to compare this kind of neo-classical "Art Deco-ish" civic structure with the rather grander Civil courts building (the "St. Louis Pyramid") across the streets. Both projects were conceived during the 1920s, as part of an enormous burst of civic planning and renovation. Just a few years separate the buildings in time; but the US Courts were planned and constructed AFTER the Great Depression, and here the style is much more restrained, more pared down, minimalistic almost.

The local architects Mauran, Russell and Crowell were responsible for the US Court House/Custom House. (Street address of 1114 Market.)

By the way, this structure should not be confused with either the Old Courthouse - the 19th century domed building just in front of the Gateway Arch; or with the Thomas Eagleton Federal Courthouse, recently constructed (2000) and just a few blocks away on 10th street.

by JiveSTL

For the record-- St. Louis is NOT a southern city. It is Midwestern, with an eastern flair. People here (in the city especially) are raw and urban. St. Louisans have a unique urban dialect that is very noticeable, especially on the South Side. This is one of America's historic Big Ten cities. The culture and character of the city is unique and distictive. We have many local foods, pronunciations, colloquialisms and customs. You will find St. Louis an interesting and diverse city to visit.

NHL - Blues Hockey

by changeinlatitude

It's a busy time in St. Louis these days. The Cardinals are in the World Series. We've got Rams football and now the St. Louis Blues hockey season is in full swing.

The new name of the building the Blues play in is now The Scott Trade Center. It use to be The Savvis Center. Just keep that in mind when you are looking up information for the games. Still the same building, just a different name.

They have done some great improvements to the rink so watching the Blues in town is even better.

If you want to attend a Blues historical event, December 3, 2006 they will be retiring Brett Hull's jursey. I know I will be there. Good luck getting tickets.

Any time you are in to go to the games, get there early and have a bite to eat in the 14th & Clark bar. It is always busy and always good. A great place to meet your friends befor the game.

LETS GO BLUES Bring a large full wallet. It's never cheap to park, eat or drink when you are there.

All performances start at 8:15 PM.

The rest of the season: "Cats" (July 5-11); "Annie" (July 12-18); "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (July 19-25); "The Music Man" (July 26-August 1); "Guys and Dolls" (August 2-8);
and "42nd Street" (August 9-15).
