O’Hare is one of the busiest airports in the world but today it is difficult for people within the Midwest to access. Current options for getting to the airport include expensive regional flights, long car rides on congested expressways or crowded commuter trains.
This is why we are advocating for CrossRail Chicago, a fast and cost-effective way to improve travel to the airport.
CrossRail would not only create an airport express service, the upgrades necessary would also allow for improved Amtrak and Metra service throughout the region. A new train station at O’Hare could serve as a hub for high-speed rail, connecting to hundreds of destinations across the Midwest.
