Metra Seeks Public Comments On Proposed Schedule Changes By April 15

Metra is inviting the public to comment on proposed schedule changes to weekday service along the BNSF Line. The comment period is open until April 15.

The BNSF will be the first Metra line to have Positive Train Control (PTC), a new safety system, which will require revisions to the line's schedule. PTC is a federally mandated safety system that will automatically stop a train if the engineer fails to obey a signal or exceeds the speed limit.

There is a page on the Metra website with links to a copy of the proposed schedule; a video and Q&A to explain PTC and an email address accepting public comment.
