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.

Railroad Safety

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.
