Metra and Transparency

Transparency is a key Metra value.

In an effort to provide the public with information, Metra’s Board had this page created as a resource to access data as well as other useful information about Metra.

The goal is not only to make it simple to get information and records from Metra, but also to give riders and the public time to view and comment on important strategic and operational issues under consideration at the agency.
