That way you could park on the western side or get dropped off, take the people mover (train, hyperloop, high speed sled, teleporter, etc) and check in at the existing counters and security checkpoints.
It would eliminate the need for airline specific baggage and check in facilities on the west side, and still provide "western access."
Wouldn’t you have to either tunnel under the field or go around the perimeter to do that? It seems like an awfully expensive option just to shave 20 minutes off the drive for someone coming down the Elgin O’Hare.
