    Hi SuryaPriya
    welcome to Chicago.
    I also work in downtown, commute from suburbs.
    please check if your office is near Union Station or Oglive Station or Local L trains.
    Based on the also you can save lot of time.
    If near Union or Oglive, any suburb door to door it will take atleast 1 hour.
    metrarail.com website is for Metra trains.
    Many Indians in this location
    BNSF Train - Route 59 Station, Railway aparments you can just walk to train station best in winter and summer.
    BNSF Train - Naperville Station, many express train exact 30 min in train.
    Palatine or Desplaines Location - Even here there are many indians and 1 hour door-door timings.
    Near Devon - Indians and Pakistan and other religions - This also takes 1 hour (local train stops every 5min at stations)
    If you decide on which side (Aurora/Rt59/Naperville OR Palatine/Desplaines) side you would like to live i am sure
    other IL's in those areas will provide you feedback.
    Best of all is Rt59 Railway Apartments (walkable to train station) :thumbsup

    hi surya priya,

    hearty welcome to chicago. we live in westmont and my husband commutes from here to downtown union station everyday. it takes 1 hr. the bus for the train station stops in front of our building.

    the apt is little old but spacious. if u r really particular about the indian community i would say ours is the best. do let me know if u need any further details.

    Hi SuryaPriya

    Since the workplace is in downtown and near Sears.
    Why don't you try the apartments in downtown itself?

    Presidential Towers is walking distance to Sears Shruti.

    Same rent compared to apartments in suburbs but you save on commute.

    Their website can be found here:
    Presidential Towers | Overview

    Hope this helps..
