Chicago Picks Musk's Boring Co. for O'Hare Express Service
The Boring Company's new O'Hare Airport

Not a pretty trip. A Blue Line ticket from O'Hare costs $5. Better, but it still takes 40 minutes to make the trip.
Chicago has selected billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk's Boring Co to build a high-speed underground commuter system from the downtown Loop district to O'Hare International Airport, one of the world's busiest, the company and the mayor's office said. It is unknown when the project will go online, but the concept has made some headway in major U.S. cities.
The city has always been looking for a way to address the issue of long transit time between its major airport and downtown.
The Boring Company's submission reduced travel time to about "12 minutes" by utilizing electric vehicles traveling at over 100 miles per hour in new twin underground tunnels that they plan to dig. The Loop system would transport 16 passengers. (This means there will be a Loop to The Loop-very cute, Chicago.) Unlike the Hyperloop idea, the tunnels will not be depressurized. "Electric pods for sure", he wrote. The Boring Company previously released video of a very similar project planned in Los Angeles, with the goal of taking passengers from downtown to LAX in just 8 minutes.
Skates will leave each station as frequently as every 30 seconds, operating 20 hours per day, seven days a week.
Boring said the fare will be less than half that of a taxi or ride share but more than the fare on the current train system.
The company beat out a consortium that included Mott MacDonald, the civil engineering firm that designed a terminal at London's Heathrow Airport, and JLC Infrastructure, an infrastructure fund backed by former basketball star Earvin "Magic" Johnson, said the people, who declined to be identified because they weren't authorized to speak publicly. Exact project costs and construction timelines will be negotiated with the contract. "The express service will offer a myriad of benefits to the city, travelers, and residents: providing a faster commute between the airport and downtown; helping to mitigate congestion on the region's roadways; fostering economic growth and creating jobs throughout the lifetime of the project", the city's press release noted.
