Alternate Service Schedules
First Published - 03/19/2020 - 11:56AM
  • Metra is launching a new $10 All-Day Pass on June 1 and strongly encouraging customers to buy it in the Ventra app, giving them a “Touch Less, Pay Less” option to ride its trains safely and affordably. Click here for details.
  • Most Metra lines operating weekend service (except the Metra Electric) have temporarily changed to Sunday schedules for both Saturday and Sunday service. Saturday service on Metra’s SouthWest Service Line is suspended until further notice. The Metra Electric Line will continue to operate Saturday schedules on Saturdays and Sunday schedules on Sunday.
  • On weekdays, Metra is operating an alternate weekday schedule until further notice to adjust for the reduced number of riders due to school closures, work-from-home mandates and other consequences of the coronavirus pandemic. Those schedules have been adjusted for some lines, including the North Central Service, Heritage Corridor and SouthWest Service. A new schedule with additional weekday service began on the Metra Electric Line on May 18.
  • Per Gov Pritzker’s Executive Order, please wear a face covering while riding the train. Customers are required to wear a mask or face covering in public places when a six-foot social distance cannot be maintained. Help us keep everyone safe from COVID-19.
  • Please use the Ventra app to purchase tickets. The app can be downloaded free from the App Store or Google Play.

Weekend Fun in the City

The days are getting shorter, but there’s no shortage of fun in and around Chicago and Metra can take you to most of it. Our $10 Weekend Pass offers unlimited rides on Saturday and Sunday, and Family Fares, where up to three children 11 and under ride free with an adult on weekends and select holidays make it easy and affordable to enjoy a trip downtown on the train. Purchase a ticket or use a Monthly, 10-Ride Ticket, or Metra’s $10 Weekend Pass as the adult fare. Monthly Pass holders are permitted to use their tickets for unlimited weekend travel across the Metra system. This allows Monthly Pass holders to travel outside the zones indicated on their passes at no additional cost on Saturdays and Sundays.

 

Once you click here to find your rail line and click here to view Travel Guides that give you easy-to-use travel information from your downtown terminal, you’ll have everything you need for a day of fun in the city. 

 

By taking Metra, you’ll enjoy the stress-free way to travel and the kids will enjoy the fun and excitement of a train ride.
