O'Hare Needs Trains

March 12, 2018

Chicago is planning an $8.5 billion makeover that would reinvent O’Hare International Airport for the 21st century, but it’s missing one critical thing: trains.

Please ask Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to include a train station in O'Hare's redevelopment plan.

A new train station at O'Hare would impact communities across the Midwest. Whether you live in Chicago or hundreds of miles away it is important that your voice gets heard.

Communities, businesses and families across the Midwest depend on O’Hare as an international gateway, but reaching the airport can be a challenge. Fast and frequent train service can replace inefficient short haul flights and car trips on congested roads.

(The CTA Blue Line is a great option for some, but we’re talking about trains from all around the Chicago region and across the entire Midwest.)

The plan to rebuild the airport's terminals should include a train station that would serve Metra, Amtrak & high-speed trains and Pace & long-distance buses.

Please ask Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to include trains in the 21st century version of O'Hare.
