Metra to expand 3 commuter rail schedules as ridership increases

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Metra is slowly expanding its schedule on three of its busiest lines as the commuter rail says it is seeing more riders.

Metra has been operating at a reduced level since the beginning of the pandemic, but now trains are being added to the morning and evening commutes on the BNSF, Milwaukee District North and North Central lines.
