Saturday was the first day of expanded service on Metra's Southwest Line.Three round-trip trains will now run each Saturday.

The new service is a pilot project that will cost $680,000 dollars, and that cost will be shared by Metra and the Regional Transportation Authority. If successful, Metra will keep the service permanently.

The Southwest Line runs from Union Station through Oak Lawn, Worth, and ends in Manhattan.
