Airport ATS

Chicago O'Hare Airport is one of the busiest airports in the world. Many people know that CTA Blue Line 'L' trains serve the airport running to downtown Chicago. However, the airport has another internal transit system, the Airport Transit System, or ATS. This typical Airport People Mover system links all 4 terminals, plus a long term parking lot.
