Metra Electric service to increase May 18 for PTC completion

Metra announced Monday it will add service on the Electric Line on May 18 in order to complete implementation of the Positive Train Control (PTC) safety system on that line and throughout the Metra system. 

The federal government requires the implementation of PTC by the end of this year. 

The new schedule, which can be viewed here, will represent about 74 percent of the normal weekday service.

The change is not being made in response . . .
