Transport 30 people in Chicago half a mile

I need to transport about 30 people half a mile in downtown Chicago very cheaply. It seems like the cheapest thing to do is just get 10 cabs since it's expensive to hire a bus or party-van-thing for one short trip. I was wondering if anyone had any different suggestions or have tried to orchestrate something similar.

If you could live anywhere...

I'm sick of Oklahoma, sick of cold and snow, sick of everything to do with this place. I want out of the state, but cant' decide where to go next. Over the last few years I've lived in San Diego, Orlando, Cocoa Beach, the Chicago area, Tulsa Ok, and originally the Phoenix area. Most of my moves have been prompted by having a friend with a couch willing to pick me up from the Greyhound station, but this time I'd like to go somewhere completely new and for the first time truly start over on my own.

Can you help me find this transportation video?

When I was in third grade, in the early '90s, we watched a video about the history of transportation, which featured an old couple who'd contemplating taking a horse and buggy, train, car, etc. then decide it wasn't worth the hassle and say "maybe we should just stay home"? Can anyone tell me the name of the video and if it might still be available? Google has yielded me no results. Thanks.
