Round Trip Bus Charter to Chicago

Thursday, October 5, 2017, 5:30 p.m. – 10:30 p.m.

Just because the conference is in the suburbs doesn’t mean you won’t get a chance to enjoy some of the sights of the city. We’re chartering a shuttle for $25.00 round trip (includes gratuity) to a central location in the city. Once downtown, you’ll be on your own for dinner and/or sightseeing. The shuttle will pick up at 10:00 p.m. for an approximate 10:30 return to the hotel.
