Metra will implement minor schedule changes on four of its lines on Sunday, Oct. 16, at 2:01 a.m., primarily so that the schedules more accurately reflect actual operating conditions.
The changes cover only certain trains on the Milwaukee North, Milwaukee West, SouthWest Service and Heritage Corridor lines. In most cases, the changes adjust a train’s departure times from certain stops or its running times between stations or overall by one to four minutes. Those changes are being made so the schedules are more accurate.
A proposal to advance the departure time of outbound Milwaukee North Train No. 2121 by 10 minutes was nixed after feedback from riders indicated the change would negatively impact them. That train will retain its current departure time from Union Station of 2:35 p.m.
