The project is unusual in that no government funding is involved, forcing the winner to finance the entire construction cost itself. That limited interest from bidders, and has caused some to take a skeptical view of the so-called O'Hare Express project, which has been in the works for years.


okay that makes me feel better. this is still so god damn dumb

The Chicago system is expected to be able to handle nearly 2,000 passengers per direction per hour, with cars leaving every 30 seconds to two minutes, city officials said. How much a ride will cost is subject to final negotiations, but Boring has stated a goal of charging between $20 and $25 — or half the cost of a typical ride-share or cab ride to O’Hare, a source familiar with the talks said.

cta says the capacity of one car is 61. with eight cars on a train that's 488 people. running every 10 minutes that's 2,928 per hour.

what is the point of this and how do they expect to make money off of it

I honestly fifty fifty believe no one involved thinks this is ever gonna happen and it’s Rahm doing Elon a solid as part of his massive recent PR warpath to distract from blazing dumpster that’s Tesla’s financial state

the blue line and the kennedy are both fine wtf is wrong with rahm that he thinks this is a good idea. he's been pushing for high speed rail from o'hare to the loop and other crap for years it seems. did he like get caught in really bad traffic once and now think it's the worst problem facing the city?

Rahm: "We can't have a whites-only car from O'hare on the blue line. They'll kill me in the press"

Flunkie: "How about we charge $25 per ride?"

Rahm: "You have my attention"
