The Sear's Tower as seen from my Greyhound Bus

At the Chicago Greyhound Bus Terminal

Arriving the Chicago Greyhound Terminal.  This completed my first in a lifetime Greyhound bus ride.  I had to walk a few blocks to Union Station.  I discovered later that Van Galder Bus Service is a better option if you park their at Janesville Terminal.  Parking is a problem from Madison.  Greyhound charged $25 per week for parking.  On all my subsequent trips I used Van Galder from Janesville.  Parking is free and they bring or pick you up at the front door of Union Station and Midway Airport.

After storing my luggage in a locker at Union Station, I walked to the Sear;s Tower.
