New BNSF Schedule

A new Metra BNSF train schedule will effect on June 11, 2018. This schedule change is due to the implementation of Positive Train Control (PTC) and also incorporates feedback from the approximately 2,400 customer comments Metra received during the public comment period.

Commuters who take the train from Western Springs or La Grange to Chicago currently have a choice of six trains between 6:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. As of June 11, that will go up to seven at each station, including a train that will stop at Western Springs at 6:26 a.m., and La Grange Road at 6:33 a.m. and a train that will stop at Western Springs at 8:30 a.m., get to the La Grange Road station at 8:37 a.m., arrive at Congress Park stop in Brookfield at 8:41 a.m. and run express to Union Station, arriving at 8:59 a.m.
