Are You Looking To Buy A Chevy In Chicagoland?

August, 2015 by

Let’s say that you are fortunate enough to be able to afford to live in the historic city of Lockport Illinois and commute to work in Chicago itself. Your home city grew up alongside the Illinois and Michigan Canal who had their headquarters close to their Lock #1. The canal is no longer operational but its route is now the Illinois and Michigan National Heritage Corridor and the area around the original lock has become one of the best conserved canal sights in the nation. The historical importance of the old canal has led to Lockport being also known as “The City That Made Chicago Famous”. All in all, it is a great place to live in; with plentiful parks, recreation areas and museums to enrich the lives of its inhabitants.

But, What About That 40 Mile Or So Commute?

You can take a Metra (Metropolitan Rail Corporation) train from nearby stations. The Heritage Corridor line runs out of Joliet; through your home city  and only takes about 59 minutes to reach Chicago Union Station and (largely because it only runs around 3 trains per day) is not all that crowded.

For other lines like BSNF there are many more trains; but, the time taken goes out to 1 hour and 59 minutes and the trains will definitely be very full during both morning and evening rush hours. However, the available buses take even longer.

If Public Transport Sounds Tiresome – Use A Car

Since it is quite likely that you would wish to use a car to get from your house to the commuter station or bus stop; there is obviously a great attraction in driving to work. Especially, since Chicagoland boasts a good network of roads connecting the city to its suburbs. Depending on route and traffic conditions; commuting by car should take between 45 to 48 minutes and be not only door to door but slightly quicker and definitely more comfortable than public transport.

Which Marque Of Car Will You Use?

Statistically it should be a car from General Motors, Ford, Toyota or Chrysler since the latest (2014) figures show these to be purchased most often in the US. Should you support GM; you are more likely to buy a car made by their Chevy division since that is their best selling line that is still available under the old maxim of “a car for every purse and purpose”. New or pre-owned; for Chevrolet In Lockport; you may find it advantageous to go a short way out of town and check out the massive inventory at a dealership such as Hawk Chevrolet Cadillac of Joliet.
