Metra Schedule Changes Coming
Beginning this summer, the BNSF Line between Aurora and Chicago’s Union Station, which serves residents at the Lisle Metra stop, will be the first to implement the new Positive Train Control (PTC) safety system. This system will provide extended safety measures for train riders, but also will impact train schedules. The proposed weekday schedule revision is now available at metrarail.com and can be found by selecting ‘Proposed BNSF Schedule Changes due to Positive Train Control’ on the website’s home page. Metra and BNSF are currently seeking public comment. Feedback can be emailed to BNSFservice2018@metrarr.com and will be accepted until Sunday, April 15, 2018. For more information about PTC and how it will impact schedules, along with a video, can be found here.
