How to safely transport a newborn baby in downtown Chicago without your own car?

Jump to last reply

Are there special transportation/taxi services in Chicago that might cater to parents with babies or small children?

My friends are thrilled and excited to be adopting a newborn baby in Chicago, which is out of state for them. They do not want to drive their own car in downtown Chicago from the hotel (where they will be staying for a few days) to the Daley Center and back with the baby because of the hassle with driving and parking in a busy downtown area.

If they cannot find a reasonably priced hotel within short walking distance of the Daley Center they will need transportation back and forth. My friends cannot imagine trying to set up a car seat safely in a taxi (remember, this will be in their first days with a newborn and they are first time parents) and I wonder if there are good, safe alternatives for them to consider.

Any ideas, recommendations or experiences with this sort of situation?
