    I'm considering another trip to Chicago, taking the train up and flying back in March. In the past I always rented cars at the sta tion which was very convenient. Now that the parking garage is getting demolished, I understand cars can no longer be rented at the station. Has anyone had recent rental experience in downtown Chicago near the station? Or if I do it do I suck it up and go to the airport somehow(?) and rent there? The Eagle lands near 2 although with Amtrak arrival times can be aspirational which scares me about locations that close at 5. Any thoughts / advice?

    There are several car rental places within a block or two of Union Station; I'd walk to one of them.

    Budget and avis relocated to franklin between jackson and van buruen because the amtrak garage was demolished. Hope this helps.

    You can also rent from/ hold a free cancellation reservation at midway airport. Just a thought.

    Enterprise is only coming from 2 blocks away. All of the major companies have offices nearby.
