Tuesday Metra meeting focuses on Electric Line schedule changes

Schedule changes to the Metra Electric Line train service, including some reductions, will be addressed at a Tuesday information meeting from 4 to 7 p.m. at Flossmoor Village Hall, 2800 Flossmoor Road.

The Chronicle gave incorrect information on several items in a story posted Sunday that we regret. Corrected information is as follows:

Metra is not making extensive cuts to the Saturday service, as the Chronicle reported. 

Saturday trains will be running close to the current schedule, said Metra spokesman Michael Gillis. Metra proposes to cut Saturday service from 23 trains . . .
