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.

Buy Tickets

Metra tickets for any line may be purchased at the downtown stations or at outlying stations where a ticket agent is on duty. On the Metra Electric Line, tickets at non-downtown stations are available through vending machines. All  Metra tickets can also be purchased on your Apple or Android smartphone with the free Ventra App, available in the App Store or Google Play.

Where no ticket agent or vending machine exists, passengers may board the train and purchase a One-Way Ticket with cash from the conductor. However, if an agent is on duty or a vending machine is available and you elect to purchase the ticket on the train, the conductor will charge an additional $5. Avoid the fee by using the Ventra App to buy tickets anytime, anywhere.
