Metra will start accepting credit card payments for tickets but not until next February.Customers will be able to use credit cards at Metra stations or on the internet.

The commuter rail will revamp its web site to allow credit card transactions.

Metra had resisted credit card payments for tickets... Saying it did not want to incur the fees from credit card companies.

The agency is also working on a system that allows customers to print tickets at home.
