Getting From East St Louis to Chicago on $20

Character is a 13 year old boy.

Character needs to get to Chicago from East St Louis and back. Hopefully in one day but maybe two.

On a school day.

Character has $20 cash.

According to the Amtrak website there doesn't seem to be a train station on East St Louis.

According to the Greyhound website there doesn't seem to be a bus station on East St Louis.

How do people get out of East St Louis?

Edit: For plot reasons I can't bring St Louis into this. Sorry, forgot to mention that.

Edit 2 (Electric Boogaloo): Guess he's going to have to hitchhike...
