Getting To and From Waveland

Are you driving in from out of town and staying at the Hotel Zachary? If you are, we highly recommend you leave your car at Waveland Bowl for the weekend and use our amazing public transit. This will save you $$ on Valet costs.

For 15.00 you will have unlimited access to all buses and trains in the Chicagoland area. We have the 152 bus that will take you within 1 block to the bowling alley and is about 15 minutes travel time. We also have the 22 bus that will take you directly to all the North side bars such as Jackhammer and Touche. This would be about a 20 minute bus ride. The 22 also runs 24 hours. This bus will also take you directly to Andersonville as well.

Staying at the Hotel Zachary you are also 1 block from the redline train. This train will take you directly downtown and is a short 20 minute trip to the Magnificent Mile. You would get off at the Chicago stop and walk 1 block east or get off the Monroe stop and visit State Street or Millennium Park where the famous Bean is located.

If you would like us to have a 3 day pass for you please send us a message or you can purchase one at the Addison redline stop which is 1 block from the Hotel. Also, use CTA Bus Tracker for arrival times for the 152 Addison or 22 Clark Street bus. Redline train runs every 7-10 minutes.

You are within walking distance to Boystown. It is about a 5 minute walk to the heart of the neighborhood. If you have any questions feel free to send us a message!
