The Cubs travel to different parts of the world to play exhibition games and participate in clinics. This helps them to stay sharp and keep their skills sharpened. It also benefits them financially, as they are able to generate revenue from these types of events.

How the Chicago Cubs travel to home games
The home of the Chicago Cubs is Wrigley Field, located in Chicago, Illinois. The Cubs travel to their home games by team charter flight. The team typically flies out of Midway Airport, which is located about 10 miles from downtown Chicago.
The Cubs usually fly on Fridays and Saturdays for weekend home games, and they usually fly on Wednesdays for weekday home games. The team Charter usually arrives at Midway Airport about two hours before game time.
Once the team arrives at the airport, they are either taken by bus or van to Wrigley Field. The ride from the airport to Wrigley Field usually takes about 30 minutes.
How the Chicago Cubs travel to the playoffs
Since the Chicago Cubs play in the National League, they don’t have to travel as far for the playoffs as teams in the American League. The National League has 16 teams, and is divided into two divisions: the East and the West. The Chicago Cubs play in the Central division of the National League, which has four teams.
The top two teams in each division (the division winner and the wild card team) make it to the playoffs. In the first round of the playoffs (the divisional round), the team with the better record plays at home. So, if the Cubs have a better record than their opponents, they will play at Wrigley Field. If they have a worse record, they will play on the road.
The divisional round is a best-of-five series, meaning that whichever team wins three games first will advance to the next round. If the series is tied 2-2 after four games, then a fifth and final game will be played to determine who advances.
If the Cubs win their divisional round series, they will move on to face either the team that won the East or West division in what is called the Championship Series (a best-of-seven series). And finally, if they win that series, they will advance to play in the World Series—a best-of-seven series between Major League Baseball’s two champions (one from each league).
How the Chicago Cubs Travel to the World Series
It’s a long way from Chicago to Los Angeles, and the Chicago Cubs have to travel a lot this October. They will be playing in the National League Championship Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers, and if they win that series, they will travel to the World Series.
The Cubs have been using a chartered plane to travel during the playoffs, but it’s not just any plane. It’s a 757-200, which has been specially outfitted for the team with extra legroom, bigger seats, and 60 TVs.
The team has also been using trains to travel between cities during the playoffs. They took a train from Chicago to St. Louis for their first playoff series against the Cardinals, and they took a train from Chicago to Los Angeles for their second playoff series against the Dodgers.
So far, the Cubs have had pretty good luck travelling by both plane and train. Let’s hope they can keep it up all the way to the World Series!
