Elimination of Ticket-by-Internet program
First Published - 04/27/2018 - 10:24AM

Due to declining internet ticket sales, Metra is eliminating the Ticket-by-Internet program – which includes recurring orders and one-time sales of Monthly Passes and 10-Ride Tickets on its website. The last day to purchase a Monthly Pass (July) via this program will be June 20 and the last day to purchase a 10-Ride Ticket will be June 30. This action is part of a continuing effort by Metra to identify ways to reduce expenses. Please see alternate purchasing options here.

Safety is Metra’s number one priority. Not just for our employees on the job but in all our interactions with the communities we serve. That's why Metra proactively reinforces the importance of railroad safety through its Operation LifesaverTrain Safety Awareness Program and our annual Safety Poster and Essay Contest.  
 
Through Operation Lifesaver, Metra employees give presentations to community and school groups about safe behaviors around trains. They also visit stations across our rail system to talk to our riders and distribute safety materials. The Metra Safety Poster and Essay Contest helps to reinforce our rail safety messages by encouraging children to create artwork or an essay illustrating the importance of a specific safety theme. Both programs help keep safety at the forefront of our children's and customers' minds as they interact with the region’s rail system.
