Bus stations don't have a great reputation, and a degree of alert wariness is something to maintain while waiting for a bus or disembarking in any big city. However, Chicago's new and improved Greyhound Bus Station, on the near South Side, is a relatively safe and sane example of the genre. Designed by architects Nagle, Hartray & Associates, this 1991 depot replaces a more centrally located station in the Loop, making up in elegance what it lacks in convenience. The bus bays are discreetly screened from view, and public transportation and a cab stand allow the weary traveler a graceful exit. There's a CTA rail station one block north on Clinton and Congress; it's on the Blue Line that also takes you to O'Hare Airport. Although the station is well within walking distance of the South Loop, the trip is not the most wonderful introduction to the beauties of Chicago.
