The last day to purchase a Monthly Pass (July) via this program will be June 20 and the last day to purchase a 10-Ride Ticket will be June 30.

Metra to add trains for Women’s March Chicago

(January 17, 2018) - 

Metra will offer extra service on its busiest lines this Saturday to accommodate the expected higher ridership for the Women’s March Chicago.

Additional trains will run on the BNSF, UP North, UP Northwest and UP West lines. Customers are advised to listen to station announcements and check and the Ventra App because extra trains besides those scheduled may be dispatched to accommodate passengers. All other lines will run on their regular schedules, but will have expanded seating capacity. There is no Saturday service on the North Central Service and Heritage Corridor lines.

Detailed schedule information can be found at here.

Metra customers who are considering bringing their bikes on the trains are advised that due to the higher number of riders expected, a bicycle warning date will be in effect on Saturday. A warning date means that there is a greater likelihood that trains will be too crowded to accommodate bicycles.
