Elon Musk’s Boring Company has won a bid to create an all-new transit tunnel system that connects directly to the Chicago O’Hare International Airport. More specifically, these underground transit tunnels will link the O’Hare Airport to Block 37 of Downtown Chicago, traveling to Terminals 1, 2 and 3. The system relies on electric skates – modified versions of Tesla’s Model X frame – that can achieve speeds of up to 150 mph. Continue reading for another video and more information.
“The electric skates will travel through a loop to go back and forth between the airport and Downtown Chicago. Due to the system being underground, it will have much quicker transit times. The Boring Company says trips will only take about 12 minutes. When it comes to costs, the Boring Company is expecting it to be cheaper than taxis and ride-sharing service. However, it will still be more expensive than the Blue Line. Passengers also won’t have to worry about weather due to the system being underground,” reports Yahoo News.
