Some Metra riders are getting a break because of the power outages.

Many stations are still without electricity so they can't sell tickets or make announcements. Metra is temporarily waiving the onboard surcharge for riders forced to buy tickets on their train.

This applies to riders only on certain stops where the power is out.
