Metra may sell the naming rights for train stations, rail lines and even bridges.The agency's board is looking for creative ways to come up with cash. So, it's putting the idea out there.

So far, Metra does not know how much money naming rights would bring in or which organizations or corporations might be interested.

The agency is also considering adding advertising to the outside of the train cars to raise money.
