Airport Car Rental
Get your rental car at Chicago O’Hare Airport; then head to the city and start exploring! Check out the bustling downtown; then drive to the West Side—the area around Logan Square has a lot of concert venues and hip bars. Go to the East Side to enjoy Lake Michigan beaches and the relaxed atmosphere, and make sure to check out upscale Lakeview and Lincoln Park in the North Side.
Chicago has many top-notch museums—the Adler Planetarium, the Field Museum of Natural History with its amazing dinosaur skeletons, and the DuSable Museum of African American History are a few. Join a local festival or take a tour of the city to appreciate the mixture of architectural styles that range from classical and gothic to ultra-modern.
Chicago’s a great place to visit, but why not explore more with a longer-term car rental? You can check out more of the Great Lakes region, drive to nearby Cleveland and St. Louis, or take a real road trip all the way to New York City. You can even pick up your car at Chicago O’Hare Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your adventure now!

The Airport Transit System, a people mover system, is currently shut down. However, by the end of 2019, it will be operational again and will take passengers from the terminals to the Multi-Modal Facility replacing the current shuttle buses.
Routes Car Rental is located outside of the airport on Mannheim Road. To reach its location, take the shuttle from the terminals to the Multi-Modal Facility and then call them for a shuttle to their location.
Services and facilities
Nearest gas station
When coming from downtown Chicago, most will probably prefer to use I-90. I-290 to I294, the Tri-State Tollway, is also an option though it is a toll road. Those choosing the latter can conveniently stop at a Mobil station that is on the Tollway. Those traveling to the airport on I-90 are best served by exiting I-90 onto I-190 and Manheim Road as if they were going to the Multi-Modal facility. Instead of turning into the facility, they should continue north along Manheim road a few blocks to a BP station which is by far the most convenient station to stop at before returning their rental car.
If returning a rental car to Routes’ location, there is another BP station that is two blocks north of the location.
