Alternate Service Schedules
First Published - 03/19/2020 - 11:56AM

Metra will begin operating an alternate weekday schedule on Monday, March 23, to adjust for the reduced number of riders due to school closures, work-from-home mandates and other consequences of the coronavirus pandemic. The alternate schedules can be viewed here. There will be changes for every line except the Heritage Corridor, which will operate its normal schedule. Where we are able to, we will maintain the number of cars on trains to allow for social distancing. On a line-by-line basis, Metra is monitoring ridership and may further reduce service to meet the ridership demands. The reduced schedules will remain in effect until health officials deem the crisis has passed and/or ridership begins to return to normal. Metra will operate on regular weekend schedules. Please use the Ventra app to purchase tickets. The app can be downloaded free from the App Store or Google Play.

Station Level Data

Station data pertaining to boarding/alighting, mode of access and parking capacity, and utilization by station. The reports below will provide specific, in-depth station level data.

This report summarizes the results of the boarding and alighting count that took place in the fall of 2018 on each weekday train. As Metra is an “open system”, one without fare gates and has fare zones containing multiple stations, this count is important for Metra to determine boardings and alightings at the station level.

This report presents the results of the fall 2018 boarding and alighting count for each weekday train in the Metra system. Passenger boardings and alightings are organized by rail line. Station data are displayed by train and are organized according to downtown station arrival (inbound trains) and departure (outbound trains) times.

This report contains boarding station mode of access information which is based on data from Metra’s 2016 Origin-Destination Survey. Riders on all weekday morning Metra trains were surveyed and the survey was conducted concurrently with Metra’s 2016 Boarding/Alighting Counts.

This data contains information on automobile parking capacity and utilization at all Metra stations system-wide. Field counts at stations are conducted once per year to monitor changes in both parking capacity and utilization rates and can help Metra determine whether and where additional parking capacity is needed.

This data is a comprehensive inventory of all bicycle facilities throughout the Metra system (not including downtown stations). This data was developed thanks to collaboration between Metra and the League of Illinois Bicyclists and the Active Transportation Alliance in 2008. The data provides a thorough assessment of both the quality and quantity of bicycle facilities at Metra stations. Additional analysis examine bicycle parking capacity and utilization at the station, county and rail line levels.
