Metra Seeks Input on Proposed Schedule Changes
Minor changes have been suggested for the Heritage Corridor line, which has six daily trains in Lemont.
Metra is asking riders for feedback on minor schedule changes being proposed for four of its lines, including the Heritage Corridor line that stops in Lemont.
According to Metra, the schedule changes have been proposed for the Milwaukee North, Milwaukee West, SouthWest Service and Heritage Corridor lines in order to more accurately reflect actual operating conditions.
Only certain trains would see changes. In most cases, the train's departure times would be adjusted from certain stops or its running times between stations by just one to four minutes.
On the Heritage Corridor line—which stops in Joliet, Lockport, Lemont, Willow Springs, Summit and Chicago—the proposed changes are to inbound train 918 and outbound trains 917, 919 and 921. In all cases, train times would only be adjusted two to three minutes.
Comments about the changes can be made online at www.metrarail.com, or by sending an email to email@example.com. Riders can also call Metra's Customer Service line from on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m
Metra will accept feedback through Sept. 23 before making a final decision.
