  • Pat

    O’Hare Express: not feasible.

    I’ll take my $2M now.

  • Anne A

    I appreciate Jeff Danna’s perspective on the loss of a sidewalk and lack of a crosswalk in a location where common sense suggests that both should exist.

  • Chicagoan

  • Jeff Gio

    40% fare increase to truckers during day time hours… freight is already doing excellent and they would not mind more business. Hopefully capacity can keep up. Thanks Skyway
