O'Hare Airport

The Blue Line ends at a three-track terminal underground at O'Hare.  The platforms are very long, and one set of rails sometimes accommodates more than one train.  Signs point the way to the next train that will take riders toward center city. 

Planning for the fairly near future calls for the operation of premium-fare non-stop service from O'Hare to center city.  The runs will turn off the Blue Line to a new underground terminal downtown.  And -- a changed concept for American heavy rail: the line will utilize the CTA infrastructure, but will be operated by private enterprise.
