Through Sunday, June 7, Metra will be operating a modified Sunday schedule with the last late night inbound train and last late night outbound train cancelled. There will be no service on the SouthWest Service, Heritage Corridor or North Central Service lines. Riders are advised that more trains could be cancelled during the day depending on circumstances; we will be closely monitoring events and our priority will be the safety of our passengers, employees and our system. Please pay attention to this website for the latest updates.

Sunday schedules can be viewed on these timetables: Metra Electric   Rock Island    BNSF     UP West   Milwaukee District West    Milwaukee District North    UP North     UP Northwest (the last train on the UP Northwest Line will leave downtown at 10:30 p.m. instead of 11:30 p.m.)

We hope to be able to expand service to our alternate schedules posted here next week if possible.

Attention Maywood customers

(October 2, 2019) - 

Metra customers who board UP West Line trains in Maywood are advised that starting Tuesday, Oct. 8, inbound trains will board from a new temporary platform west of 5th Avenue, instead of the normal platform east of Fifth Avenue. The outbound platform is not affected.

Union Pacific Railroad and Metra are jointly adding a third track through Maywood, which is now part of a section of the line that becomes a bottleneck because it only has two tracks. The third track is being added on the north side of the existing two tracks. The switch to a temporary platform west of Fifth Avenue is being made so the third track, and a new inbound platform, can be added east of Fifth Avenue. The construction is expected to last until the spring of 2020.

The work also will close Fifth Avenue starting Oct. 8, with an anticipated reopening on Oct. 11. Pedestrians will still be able to cross the tracks at Fifth, but motorists will have to use First Avenue or Ninth Avenue as an alternative.
