Chicago has launched a Lyric Opera Bus for the northern suburbs. It costs $20 return, and you can have that second intermission drink without a second thought.

Way to go.

    Congratulations to this enormous progress – by American standards.

    I am writing this from a country where virtually any theatre and concert hall can easily be reached by public transport – and using it is in many cases included in the ticket price.

    Lyric Opera is situated just west of the loop in downtown Chicago. The Red Line subway is a few blocks to the east and the elevated train lines are even closer. A block and a half to the west is the Ogilve Center, a terminus that serves commuter trains to suburbs south, west and north. I almost always take the train when I go to the opera or symphony. No lack of public transport in Chicago.
