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.

Metra Partners with NBC 5 in a Warm Coats Drive

(December 12, 2014) - 
For the second year in a row, Metra is partnering with NBC 5 Chicago in its Making A Difference Coat Drive at all five downtown Metra stations and its headquarters lobby at 547 West Jackson.  Metra’s collection dates are December 15-17.
 
Last year Metra collected 23 50-gallon bags of new and gently used coats.  Collection bins will again be located near ticket agents at all five downtown Chicago locations: Chicago Union Station, Ogilvie Center, Millennium Station, LaSalle Station and Van Buren Station.  
 
“We are eager to partner with NBC 5 in supporting the community and helping families in need,” said Metra Executive Director/ CEO Donald Orseno. “This is our second year doing this drive and our riders have been extremely generous and supportive of this effort.”
 
Proceeds will be donated to the Salvation Army.  Other partners in this effort include: Telemundo, Comcast, Belfor and Get Covered Illinois.
