Metra Alert UP-W - Service Added To Union Pacific West Line For Pride Parade

Metra will add trains to its BNSF, Union Pacific North, and Union Pacific West lines on Sunday, June 26, to accommodate those planning to attend Chicago’s 51st Annual Pride Parade.

Two extra inbound and two extra outbound trains will be added to the BNSF Line schedule on Sunday to accommodate paradegoers. Both the UP North and the UP West Lines will add two extra morning inbound trains and one extra evening train. The June 26 schedule for BNSF can be viewed here, Union Pacific North here, and Union Pacific West here.

The parade kicks off at noon at Montrose Avenue and Broadway in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood and ends near the intersection of Diversey Parkway and Sheridan Road in Lincoln Park. The parade route is easily accessible through CTA connections from all five downtown Chicago train stations: Chicago Union Station, Ogilvie Transportation Center, Millennium Station, Van Buren Street Station and LaSalle Street Station.

For your biggest savings, take advantage of Metra’s $7 Sunday Pass. Offering unlimited rides all day Sunday, the pass can be purchased on the train with cash or via the Ventra App, which can be downloaded through the App Store or Google Play. Monthly Pass holders can also use their passes for unlimited weekend travel across the Metra system.

You can receive real-time alerts, specific to this line when you sign up for My Metra.
