– The City of Chicago has selected billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk’s The Boring Company to build a high-speed underground commuter system from the Loop to O’Hare International Airport, one of the world’s busiest, media reported on Wednesday.

The system will be comprised of 16-passenger vehicles that will travel up to 150 miles (240 km) per hour through a tunnel that will cut the current 30 to 45-minute trip between the airport and Chicago’s business district down to 12 minutes, according to Boring’s website.

The Chicago Tribune and Bloomberg first reported the deal, citing unnamed sources. Reuters has not been able to reach the city or the company for immediate comment.
