Why? The communities served by the Metra Electric are some of the highest-need communities in Cook County and many of them suffer from transit isolation -- with the longest commute times in the region.
* Runs Metra trains every 10-15 minutes on all the Electric lines
* Integrates fares and schedules across Metra, Pace and the CTA using the Ventra card with a transfer discount
* Extends Metra Electric from the south side / south suburbs to O'Hare Airport via McCormick Place and Union Station
*Rehabilitate stations with an emphasis on safety
