Holiday travel appears smooth in Illinois

CHICAGO – Travelers heading home after Thanksgiving say it's been smooth and hassle-free in the Chicago area with good weather for travel.

The Greyhound station near downtown Chicago was packed Sunday.

Leonard Reddick was waiting for his bus back to Flint, Mich. The 29-year-old said he liked the cheap fares at $84 roundtrip and traveled on Thanksgiving Day so that there'd be fewer crowds. Meanwhile Malron Murray had arrived back in Chicago from Atlanta where he'd been visiting his daughter. He said the bus wasn't too crowded.

Both of Chicago's airports reported normal operations Sunday with no delays at O'Hare or Midway international airports.

Weather across Illinois was favorable for travel with mostly clear skies and no forecasts of snow.

Chicago was expected to reach a high of 45 degrees.
