A: Although the South Shore doesn’t have a direct stop to U.S. Cellular Field, there is an easy way to get there. Simply take the South Shore Line to Millennium station. When you get to the top of the stairs, you’ll walk two blocks west along Randolph to State Street. Go downstairs to the subway and take the Red Line train. Follow overhead signs that say 95th DAN RYAN to see which track your train will be on. Take any train on that track. Ride to SOX-35th station – just a 10-minute ride.
