Increased Security - Chicago Public Transportation and Flights

Just as a heads up, there is a NATO SUMMIT meeting going on in Chicago this weekend. This means added security at the airport and on metra trains. Anyone riding the metra train should be aware that I was told (by a conductor on the train) that trains will be running behind schedule and that people may not be allowed on the train if they have any type of bag with them, although it seems like the website shows you will be subject to heavy screening if you do have a bag.

Yep, it's gonna be a cluster****... thanks NATO. Confirming from Rob's link about bags/packages for those TLDR types, haha:

From Metra:
Metra has implemented a wide range of safety measures during the NATO Summit. Passengers may see an increased law enforcement presence and K-9 units.

In addition, the following safety measures apply to riders of all Metra lines during the three days (May 19, 20 and 21) of the summit:

1. Riders may be subject to search and/or screening before boarding or while en route.

2. Riders may carry only one bag not exceeding 15 inches square and 4 inches deep. Boxes, parcels, luggage, backpacks and bicycles will not be allowed on trains. Banned items cannot be stored at Metra stations. They must be removed or they will be disposed of.

3. Riders may not carry any food on the trains. Liquids and personal effects (such as makeup) must be less than three ounces in size. This includes coffee and other beverages. Breast milk can be carried but is subject to inspection and should be declared during any screening.

4. Riders may not carry any type of tools, pipes, stakes, wood or weapons, including pocket knives and pepper spray, on the trains.

5. Law enforcement personnel must identify themselves and present their credentials and any weapons. Security guards will not be allowed to carry any weapons onboard.

The added security will not be your only problem. Several roads will be partially closed, including Lake Shore Drive and the Stevenson Expressway. That will royally **** up traffic all around the city.

I think the added security, per the train conductor on Metra this morning, will start this weekend. If you're a spectator or player traveling by train, make sure you guys are aware of the rules so your stuff doesnt get confiscated

You're gonna be paying out the *** for a cab. Try and find a shuttle, much cheaper.
