Schedule changes coming to Metra Electric Line as part of Positive Train Control program

Metra will be changing the schedule on the Metra Electric Line during the evening rush period beginning April 23.

The electric line serves communities from Chicago to University Park, including Homewood and Flossmoor.

The changes are being made to provide increased train spacing in preparation for the implementation of the Positive Train Control (PTC) safety system.

Metra Electric riders will notice changes in departure and arrival times of two to five minutes to a number of trains during the morning and evening rush hours. The changes are necessary to meet the PTC requirement that each signal and switch be tied . . .
