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.

The City of Chicago Department of Procurement Services (DPS) is hosting its 8th annual Construction Summit.


This event will feature over 75 exhibitors providing information and assistance to attendees about upcoming construction opportunities with government and employment resources. Speak with subject-matter experts from government agencies, assist agencies, and support agencies to give your business the tools needed to bid on and earn government contracts. This is a great for prime contractors, sub-contractors, and construction-related business owners to network and form lasting connections for collaboration on future construction projects.


Attendees will also be able to attend curated workshops focusing on construction opportunities, how to become certified, and employment resources. These workshops provide valuable information to help our vendor community compete for and earn government contracts.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2020 Construction Summit and encourage you to share this event with anyone who would benefit.
