Musk Venture Promises 12-Minute Service from Loop to O’Hare

Elon Musk’s The Boring Company has been selected to build and operate an express service from downtown to O’Hare International Airport. The company plans to transport passengers between O’Hare and Block 37 in the Loop in approximately 12 minutes via electric vehicles that will run at more than 100 mph through new twin underground tunnels.

“This transformative project will help Chicago write the next chapter in our legacy of innovation and invention,” Mayor Rahm Emanuel said. The Musk venture will fund the project itself, with no taxpayer subsidy.

The Boring Company was one of two final teams selected to respond to a Request for Proposals issued in March by the Chicago Infrastructure Trust. Still to come are contract negotiations between the city and The Boring Company, subject to final approval by the City Council. Plans call for departures between the Loop and O’Hare as frequently as every 30 seconds.
