Right now in *cough* The Village of Rosemont, the CTA's suburban cousin, Pace has started the free "Rosemont Lunchtime Circulator". It's a bus that runs every nine minutes from 11AM – 2PM on the weekdays. It obviously brings to you lunchtime spots, and MB Financial Park, but more importantly, it will bring you directly to The Fashion Outlets of Chicago.
If you want to walk, it's just less than one mile, which is about seven Chicago blocks or about 18 minutes. But why would you walk now that Pace has added Route 810. When the Fashion Outlets of Chicago shopping mall opens later this summer, service will be available throughout a longer period of the day and will include some additional bus stops, including the CTA Rosemont Blue Line Station. And if you missed it before, it's a free ride.
