“Increasingly, leading global visitor destinations, be they for leisure or business, count among their attributes fast and convenient mass transit hubs,” said David Whitaker, President & CEO of Choose Chicago. “As Chicago continues to break tourism records, especially international arrivals, it will be imperative that we remain competitive if not best-in-class in terms of transportation. A high speed connection to O’Hare Airport is the best way to do that, thus welcoming visitors to and from our airports and key venues.”
