Is Elon Musk Scamming Chicago?

Is Elon Musk Scamming Chicago?

Like most large American metropolises, moving around Chicago necessitates a choice between bad and worse transit options. Chicagoans attempting to commute from the city’s downtown area to O’Hare International Airport, for instance, are currently faced with two equally infuriating ways of reaching their destination: taking a car down the expressway, which can be full of traffic, or packing into the L train. Soon, however, there may be a third option: Mayor Rahm Emanuel has announced plans with Elon Musk’s Boring Company to construct and operate an underground express service to the airport. The Chicago Express Loop, which will take passengers from downtown Chicago to the airport in just 12 minutes using electric vehicles that run through new twin underground tunnels, will be funded by the Boring Company, with no taxpayer subsidy.
