  1. O'Hare

    O'Hare is the 'L' station at the northwestern terminus of the CTA's Blue Line. It is a subway station with two island platforms serving three tracks, located at O'Hare International Airport, 17 miles northwest of the Chicago Loop. Trains are scheduled to depart from O'Hare roughly every 2-7 minutes during rush-hour periods, and take about 40 minutes to travel to the Loop. It is the westernmost station of the 'L' system. It is also the only CTA station without coordinates in Chicago's grid system. The reason for this is that O'Hare Airport doesn't line up with any streets in the city. Since its opening there were rumors of an extension westward to Schaumburg either in the Tollway Median or parallelling Higgins Road. This was eventually cancelled when Metra planned a first of its kind trans-suburban commuter line known as the Suburban Transit Access Route.
