MUSK COM­PANY TO BUILD CHICAGO-TO-O’HARE EX­PRESS TRANSPORT

The Day - - WORLD & NATION -

Chicago — En­tre­pre­neur Elon Musk said a high-speed trans­porta­tion sys­tem that will whisk peo­ple be­tween down­town Chicago and O’Hare In­ter­na­tional Air­port at speeds of up to 150 mph could be op­er­a­tional in about three years. Musk joined Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to for­mally an­nounce that a Musk-owned en­ter­prise, The Bor­ing Com­pany, was se­lected for the pro­ject and will fully fund it. They say elec­tric ve­hi­cles will carry pas­sen­gers through un­der­ground tun­nels in about 12 min­utes each way. Emanuel called the new tran­sit sys­tem “the fast lane to Chicago’s fu­ture,” and said it will cre­ate jobs and make the city more com­pet­i­tive.
