Location and Transportation

Geneva, the designated seat of Kane County, enjoys an ideal suburban location along the great Fox River, approximately 45 miles west of Chicago. Local travel is convenient via several main thoroughfares. Highways 25 and 31 offer a direct connection to the neighboring cities of St. Charles to the north and Batavia to the south. State Street (IL Route 38) winds its way through Geneva, providing an efficient route to Chicago and those cities lying to the east and west.

In addition, Geneva’s location within the Chicago area offers easy access to Interstates 88 and 90 that in turn, link commuters to Interstates 290, 294 and 355.

These major roadways, coupled with passenger service, make Geneva a prime location for commuters and businesses. Geneva is served by the Metra Union Pacific/West Line, a commuter train offering transportation to Chicago’s Ogilvie Transportation Center and to the many communities located along the route.

Commercial air travel is accessible within a one-hour’s drive of Geneva. Chicago’s O’Hare International and Midway International airports offer hundreds of daily flights to destinations across the globe. Corporate travel is provided through DuPage Airport in nearby West Chicago and through Aurora Municipal Airport just 30 minutes south of Geneva.
