You are better off taking the L from Skokie. Go to the Dempster station, yellow line, take that to Howard and transfer to the Red line. Take that to Addison, you will be a block from Wrigley Field. Very easy!

Would we drive to Dempster Station in Skokie? Can we park there?

From Glenview you could take the METRA from either North Glenview or the Glenview (downtown) stops on the MD-North line. That would take you into Union Station where you would then need to either take an Uber or walk over to the Red Line on the L north to the Addison stop.

The alternative of taking the Yellow Line before transferring to the Red Line at Howard and taking the Red Line to Addison is better. Just thought I'd mention the other alternative.

Agree though... take a look at Google Maps for driving/public transportation directions. Enjoy the game.

Metra to downtown will take a lot longer. It's only an option if you want to go downtown for some other reason in addition to the game.
