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.

The City of Chicago Department of Procurement Services (DPS) is hosting its 8th annual Construction Summit.


This event will feature over 75 exhibitors providing information and assistance to attendees about upcoming construction opportunities with government and employment resources. Speak with subject-matter experts from government agencies, assist agencies, and support agencies to give your business the tools needed to bid on and earn government contracts. This is a great for prime contractors, sub-contractors, and construction-related business owners to network and form lasting connections for collaboration on future construction projects.


Attendees will also be able to attend curated workshops focusing on construction opportunities, how to become certified, and employment resources. These workshops provide valuable information to help our vendor community compete for and earn government contracts.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2020 Construction Summit and encourage you to share this event with anyone who would benefit.
