Metra is inviting people to take their trains for a free test drive.

Beginning on March 4, Metra will give away 500 free tickets each week for 14 weeks.

The tickets will be good for two rides anywhere on the system.

Metra said it wants to prove that riding trains can help cut drivers' gas costs, stress levels and travel time.
