$841M parking, rental-car center opens at Chicago airport

CHICAGO (AP) — The city of Chicago has officially opened a new $841 million parking and rental-car center at O’Hare International Airport.

The ground transportation complex, called the Multi Modal Facility, took three years to build and was opened at a ceremony on Wednesday.

Among other services offered at the 2.5 million-square-foot center are 12 electronic-car charging stations, rooms for nursing mothers and space for service animals. Still in the works for the center is a concessions area. It’s scheduled to open next summer.

Aviation department officials say the facility helps pave the way for an $8.5 billion terminal expansion to be done over the next decade.

The Multi Modal Facility was funded by airport fees and by $272 million from the Transportation Infrastructure Finance Innovation Act.
