As a Chicagoan, I will say this...
Getting in and out of Soldier Field is not a pleasant experience.

Hello Chicagoans:

I've visited Chicago, but haven't been to Soldier Field.  What's the best way to get to the stadium -- public transportation or parking?

I'll probably rent a car to get from the airport (probably Midway) to downtown area.

Thanks!

I took the subway from MDW to downtown Chicago and it was great. No issues. 45 mins strait ride that actually goes into the terminal.

Does anyone have any experience using ParkWhiz in Chicago? They came up in my Googling since I didn't want to pay a base rate of $30 to park near the venue. I booked early enough that I got a pass from 3pm Saturday to 6am Sunday. Anybody have any experience using this service (good or bad)?

No experience using ParkWhiz but I booked my parking through SpotHero last night - $15 (after $10 first-time user coupon "WINTER") for a spot about 5 blocks from Soldier Field from 10:30 a.m. Saturday through 9:00 a.m. Sunday.  A little better than paying $49 at the venue - means a couple more Guinnesses for me!

I saw decent reviews of both, so I decided to go with Parkwhiz this time. Have you used SpotHero before?

So I moved mountains, but I am excited to say that my wife and I will be at the 6/4 show at Soldier Field!  Didn't think I was going to be able to make this tour, but I am so glad...SO GLAD...that I can.  I was wondering if there were any Chicago atu2 meetups planned - anyone want to do dinner or anything?  Would love to meet some atu2 fans.

I used SpotHero in 2015 when U2 played the United Center.  Downtown, covered, valet parking for $20, took the shuttle to the show.  No problems at all with SpotHero, would definitely recommend.

ok, first timer on a forum, please be kind. Check out rallybus.net I stumbled upon this site tearing my hair out trying to figure out the best transportation to Soldier Field for the June 3 concert, but you can get this bus to any of the U2 concerts in the US. You can pick the bus up from many locations. I picked the Kenosha/Milwaukee but - it needs 21 more people to actually go, so please sign up before April 19 - current price $40 now round trip, price on website says it will go up on the 19th. Then you can get a hotel way outside of Chicago.
