If you have a FOID card you're not transporting illegally and if you get a concealed carry permit once they finally get it up and running you'll be able to carry anywhere except as specified under state law. The city ordinance will only apply to those possessing firearms illegally under state law, since state law preempts home rule laws now.
That's good to know, but state law still prevents carry on transit. Granted, the penalty seems fairly low, and I can't see an otherwise law-abiding permit holder being prosecuted for preventing an armed robbery on a train where they aren't legally entitled to carry (much like those who have thwarted home invasions with unregistered firearms in the past), I still can't see myself violating a provision of the law day in and day out.
