O'Hare Needs Trains
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.
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.

The best way to see how fast, frequent and dependable trains transform communities is to ride them and see the cities they serve.
Over the years, members of the Midwest High Speed Rail Association have traveled to see high-speed rail and transit systems in Europe and Asia. Each of the trips has been insightful and motivating. We have also made important business connections along the way.
Hopefully, you can join us on the next tour: Italy in November of 2018. The main tour begins in Rome on November 3 and ends in Rome on November 11. Rick Harnish will be your tour leader.
