It could be the biggest news for Chicago since the Cubs won the World Series: Elon Musk's Boring Company won a bid to build an express train to O'Hare Intl. Airport. 

But this is not your average train:

  • You'll board a pod-like electric vehicle (called a "skate"). These cars will carry 8-16 passengers, leave every 30 seconds, and travel up to 150 mph in underground tunnels. Here's what a station might look like:

This contract is a game changer

For Chicago...

  • As any Chicagoan will tell you, getting to da airport from da downtown "Loop" is a nightmare, whether yer taking the L train (~40 minutes) or sitting in traffic. The plan here is to whisk you out to O'Hare in just 12 minutes.

And for Musk...

  • Winning this bid adds legitimacy to a company that he started as a hobby just a year and a half ago. 

Now go reward yourself with a Bean selfie, Elon. But there's still a long way to go until this thing actually gets built.
