Elon Musk have a boring company, but how boring is that company when we know that they are building high-speed express trains? Not much. One of their first contracts is now a reality and people in Chicago can start to look forward to the future at O`Hare International Airport.
Three months after the Boring Company was selected as a finalist in a bid for Chicago
s high-speed transit tunnel, the office of Mayor Rahm Emanuel confirmed on Wednesday that Elon Musks Boring Co has been chosen to build the express train that will connect O`Hare International Airport with downtown Chicago.
The Boring Company
s transit system, likely in the form of underground high-speed tunnels, will come as a relief to the travelers who currently spend 40 minutes or more and pay as much as $60 for travel by taxi from the Loop, Chicagos downtown central business district, and O`Hare International Airport.
Passengers will be able to travel at high-speed between the two destinations in as little as 12 minutes and at a cost of $20 to $25 per trip.
The transit system will be part of an $8,5 billion overhaul of O`Hare airport. The Boring Company estimates project costs to come in below $1 billion.
The company is near completion on a test tunnel beneath SpaceX and will offer «free demo rides» to the public, barring final regulatory approval.
