Alternate Service Schedules
First Published - 03/19/2020 - 11:56AM

Metra will begin operating an alternate weekday schedule on Monday, March 23, to adjust for the reduced number of riders due to school closures, work-from-home mandates and other consequences of the coronavirus pandemic. The alternate schedules can be viewed here. There will be changes for every line except the Heritage Corridor, which will operate its normal schedule. Where we are able to, we will maintain the number of cars on trains to allow for social distancing. On a line-by-line basis, Metra is monitoring ridership and may further reduce service to meet the ridership demands. The reduced schedules will remain in effect until health officials deem the crisis has passed and/or ridership begins to return to normal. Metra will operate on regular weekend schedules. Please use the Ventra app to purchase tickets. The app can be downloaded free from the App Store or Google Play.

Moving tickets from one device to another

When you buy a mobile ticket for riding Metra, it's stored on the device you used to buy it.

If you bought your tickets while logged in, however, you can move them to a new device (such as when upgrading to a new phone). When you do this, all tickets on the device you're moving tickets from will be moved to the new device.

If you have both devices (the one the tickets are on and the one you want to move your tickets to) handy, you can do this from the My Metra Tickets page on the Ventra website.

If your phone or device has been lost or stolen, call Ventra Customer Service at 1-877-NOW-VENTRA (877-669-8368)—a Ventra representative can invalidate tickets on a lost device and make them available to you on your new one right over the phone.

More information about doing this can be found here.
