    What's the difference between saying: I'm transiting Chicago. VS I'm transferring

    What's the difference between saying:

    I'm transiting Chicago.

    VS

    I'm transferring Chicago.

    And

    I'm transiting in Chicago.

    VS

    I'm transferring in Chicago.

    Do all mean the same thing?

    What are you doing in Chicago? Changing planes or moving house?

    Or actually moving Chicago, as you imply in 1b?

    Sorry, I'm at an airport texting a friend, telling him what I was doing.

    Are all usable in this circumstance:

    I'm transiting Chicago.

    VS

    I'm transferring Chicago.

    And

    I'm transiting in Chicago.

    VS

    I'm transferring in Chicago.

    No, they aren't.

    I still don't know what you are doing there.

    I am not a teacher.

    Do you mean that you are in transit?

    Might the OP mean that he is at an airport in Chicago and transferring elsewhere soon?

    Not a teacher.

    "I am in transit in Chicago" would make sense.

    not a teacher

    I would say "I have a layover in Chicago."
