Location & Transportation

Oak Forest and Crestwood are situated just over 20 miles from the Loop, in southwest Cook County. The region’s wide range of transportation options provides residents and business owners with easy access to both the excitement of downtown Chicago and the relaxation of the suburbs.

Commuters and shoppers alike can take advantage of 24/7 access to downtown Chicago and all points in-between on the Metra trains that depart regularly from the Oak Forest commuter station at 159th & Cicero Avenue. The station is served by four commuter parking lots with more than 1,000 parking spaces. The Pace bus system also shuttles commuters to and from the station and other destinations with convenient morning, afternoon and evening routes.

Those who prefer to drive to their destinations will enjoy the convenience of several nearby interstates, including I-57, I-80 and I-294. Oak Forest and Crestwood are also served by U.S. Route 6 and State Routes 43 (Harlem Avenue) 50 (Cicero Avenue) and 83.

And for those needing to reach regional, national or international destinations quickly, the area is only 20-25 minutes from Chicago Midway International Airport and 45-50 minutes from Chicago O’Hare International Airport.
