Weekday matinee bus

Need a ride to the Lyric Opera House?

Lyric Opera is pleased to offer luxury motor coach service from Northbrook Court Shopping Mall for weekday matinee performances. Join us on our Lyric Bus and avoid the hassles of traffic and public transportation — plus, ride to your performance with fellow music lovers!

Meet us at Northbrook Court and let us do the driving for just $20 round-trip. Arrive at the Lyric Opera House in time to enjoy one of Lyric's onsite restaurants (reservations required) or attend a free pre-opera talk (operas only) one hour before the performance!

Location & parking

Parking and pick up for the Lyric bus is at Northbrook Court on the south side of Neiman Marcus (lower level). Northbrook Court is located on Lake Cook Road, West of Hwy. 41 just east of I-294, west of the Edens.

Where to park

Northbrook Court has provided Lyric Bus patrons with their own parking area for pick-up and drop-off. It is the small overflow lot across the road from the main Neiman Marcus parking lot. If you are coming from Lake Cook Rd, follow signs for Neiman Marcus and the Lyric Bus parking lot will be on your left. A Lyric Opera staff member will be there to meet you. 


Pick up location

Pick up location is in Northbrook Court at the overflow lot opposite Neiman Marcus. The map shows the location, which is on the outskirts of the mall. The company we are using is Aries Charter and their name is on the bus.

Pick up times are based on arriving 60 mins prior to the pre-opera talks, giving you time to attend the pre-opera talks (operas only) or dine at one of our restaurants.


The bus

Lyric has engaged full-sized motor coaches equipped with amenities including a restroom, climate control, wireless access, and full storage bays. Each bus has the capacity to accommodate up to two wheelchairs and features the "kneeler feature" that lowers and raises the bus for easier entrance and exit.
