One of the easiest ways to figure out your proximity to public transportation is to call the Chicago Transit Authority and given them two addresses that you'd like to travel between (i.e. work and home). They can then give you the fastest route between the two destinations. The numbers are 1-888-968-7282 or 1-312-836-7000. Good luck.
