Wilmette is unique from the other North Shore suburbs in its number of transportation choices. Wilmette offers the most variety of ways for people to get around. With Chicago’s fun weather and construction projects, this variety is meaningful as you always have an alternative way to get where you are going.
Wilmette offers you three public bus routes, two train systems and the expressway as options to get you to work each day. My teen takes the Pace bus at our corner to New Trier high school. My pre-teen can take either of the Pace buses near her school to downtown Wilmette to go to the library. Finally, if you run out of milk, you can easily run out to many local stores less than 5 minutes away to get some. Errands here do not mean a 20 minute ride in the car battling traffic. There are no multi-lane wide roads here. Pedestrians, joggers and bike riders can safely travel in the community.
