Emanuel revives plan to build express rail line from Loop to O’Hare

By Mike Flannery,

Mayor Rahm Emanuel is reviving a plan to build a brand new express rail line between downtown and O’Hare airport.

He claims it would give a jet-powered boost to Chicago’s search for new employers and new jobs.

A train to the plane from the Loop to O’Hare in under 20 minutes, with a possible one-way fare of $50? Not for everyone. But some travelers tired of expressway traffic jams say they’d happily pay.
