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.
Hopefully, you can join us in Rome on November 3rd to see how Italy has implemented the Phased Network Approach: building segments of high-speed line that benefit many communities at once.
You will ride high-speed trains of two competing companies, visit great stations and learn about local transit systems. An optional add-on to Bari on the Adriatic coast may include a visit to a construction site. Here are some highlights:
