First Published - 05/31/2020 - 9:22PM

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.

SBE

Metra’s Small Business Enterprise Program

On June 1, 2016 Metra’s Office of Diversity & Business Enterprise (ODBE) launched its Small Business Enterprise (SBE) program. The purpose of the SBE program is to assist small businesses and ensure they have a fair opportunity to participate on Metra projects. It is a set-a-side program designed to increase the number of competitively awarded contracts to small businesses, maximize contract opportunities, and minimize contract bundling.

Metra is encouraging all small businesses that qualify to complete the SBE verification process.

To qualify as an SBE, companies must:

  • Be an independently minority, or non-minority owned business;
  • For-profit business;
  • Personal net worth must not exceed $1.32 million; and
  • Meet the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) size standard, and not exceed $23.98 million in gross annual receipts.

If you are currently certified as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) with Metra or one of the other four Illinois Unified Certification Program (IL UCP)  members: Chicago Transit Authority, Pace, Illinois Department of Transportation and the City of Chicago, you are  considered a SBE and do not have to complete the verification process. However, you must provide proof of DBE certification when submitting your bid.
