| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

If you ride Metra's UP West of Northwest Lines, you might want to attend next week's public meetings on proposed expansions of both lines.

Metra wants to increase service on the UP W from 59 to up to 80 trains per day, improve options for reverse commuters and reduce bottlenecks on the line.

The UP NW project would extend service to a new station in Johnsburg and increase the number of trains.

The UP West meetings will be:
July 10, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Elmhurst City Hall, 209 N. York Street.
July 11, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Geneva City Hall, 22 S. First Street

The UP NW meetings are scheduled for:
July 10, from 6 to 8 p.m., Arlington Heights Memorial Library, 500 N. Dunton Ave
July 12, from 6 to 8 p.m., Crystal Lake Municipal Complex, 100 W. Municipal Complex

More information is available on Metra's website, www.metrarail.com.

My husband is a reverse commuter on the Metra, but will not be come October, as Pace are terminating the feeder shuttle buses which take so many from the Metra stations to their offices. He will now have literally no choice but to get a car to do that 10 minute ride, which will mean not only have Pace lost his business, Metra will lose it too. Oh and his commuting cost will quadruple.
