The Boring Company, which belongs to a well-known businessman and entrepreneur Elon Musk, will build a high-speed underground train system to Chicago's O’Hare Airport.
As Chicago Tribune notes, although the project is the fastest, it is not the cheapest one. The travel time to the airport will be really decreased from 40 to 12 minutes, which passengers will spend in comfortable express trains, designed for 16 people each. The speed of the tunneling is 160 km / h. The project, which was estimated at about $1 billion, will be implemented at the expense of private investors.
Meanwhile, Musk has said that the ride will cost about $20-25, which is approximately equal to the cost of taking a taxi to the airport. And this is four times the cost of the Blue Line trip — Chicago subway, which runs from O'Hare International Airport through the downtown of the city to the western part of Chicago.
