CHICAGO — The city is asking for proposals to design, build and operate an express train to the O'Hare Airport, CBS News reported.

The proposed service is expected to cut the travel time down to 20 minutes, which is half the current time it takes to get to the airport.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced Wednesday that that the city, in coordination with the Chicago Infrastructure Trust will issue a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for respondents to present their qualifications to design, build, finance, operate and maintain an O’Hare Express operating system through a public-private agreement with the city, the report said.
