About Metra

Alternate Service Schedules
First Published - 03/19/2020 - 11:56AM
  • 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.
  • It is using its normal weekend schedules on lines that have weekend service.
  • The alternate weekday schedules, which can be viewed here, represent about half of Metra's normal weekday service but provide adequate service for those who still need to travel. There are changes for every line except the Heritage Corridor, which is operating its normal schedule. Where we are able to, we will maintain the number of cars on trains to allow for social distancing. The reduced schedules will remain in effect until health officials deem the crisis has passed and/or ridership begins to return to normal.
  • Please use the Ventra app to purchase tickets. The app can be downloaded free from the App Store or Google Play.
