Need some more specifics? Where will you be?
Are you referring to the Metra line?

Oh, I see. You would like to take a train from Chicago to New Orleans.
Don't park downtown. Rather, park somewhere on a Metra line in the suburbs and take the Metra or the el downtown. One possibility might be to take advantage of airport long term parking and take the Blue Line in from O'Hare. If you look at a map of the Metra lines, you can start googling long-term parking in the towns that run along the line.

That's what I was thinking. There used to be some good off-airport parking businesses on Mannheim - I am guessing they are still there. They have free shuttles to the airport. From there you can get a blue line train and get to Union.

I've never tried this for overnight parking, but perhaps the website/app "SpotHero". I imagine you'd pay a LOT more for a downtown spot than finding a suburban lot near the Metra though... I've found it great for day trips.
