Minor schedule adjustments approved for the BNSF line
(March 2, 2012) -
Starting March 11, 2012, Metra is making minor schedule adjustments on the BNSF line, primarily so that the schedules more accurately reflect actual operating conditions.
Only certain trains on the BNSF line will see modifications. In most cases, a train’s departure times from certain stops or its running times between stations or overall by two to five minutes. The adjustments affect both weekday and weekend trains with most of the proposed schedule adjustments affecting non-peak and weekend trains. The changes are designed to make the schedules more accurate and/or to minimize conflicts with other trains.
