Last year I took the METRA commuter train up to Waukegan and then took a bus. Total cost return must have been about $15 max.

There was also a shuttle bus run by Chicago transit that left from an EL station. I chose the train as it offered a more flexible schedule.

Check out their respective websites. That's where I found all the info.

There's no bus that will take you from any distance to GAm. The bus route that I used to use (and I KNOW you want to get up there badly, but once I got a license, I said I'd never go through that hassle again) went between Waukegan (far east of GAm) to GAm along Grand Avenue, and I believe stopped at Gurnee Mills last.

That said, you can take a train to get to the station, but you may not want to if it means wasting all that time in transport.

I know that Pace Bus has an Express Bus To and From SFGAM during the summer. ( June 14 - August 17, 2003) But there are only 2 stops one in Schaumburg and another one in Rosemont. So if you live near one of those places you are in luck. You can visit for more info.

Check out Greyhound's site.

They have a bus stop in Waukegan which is just east of Gurnee. The bus stop is on Grand Ave. From there you can catch a local Pace bus right off Grand Ave. that will take you right to the park.
