In response to dramatically low ridership due to the COVID-19 crisis, Metra will temporarily further reduce the schedules on its three least busy lines – the Heritage Corridor, SouthWest Service and North Central Service – starting Monday, May 4.
The North Central service will leave Antioch one time each weekday at 5:55 am, arriving in Chicago Union Station at 7:33am. It will return to Antioch leaving Chicago Union Station at 4:25pm, arriving in Antioch at 6:05 pm.
All trains will have enough cars for customers to be able to practice social distancing, and Metra will be prepared to add trains when ridership begins to return to normal. Some riders on the North Central Service may be able to use the Milwaukee District North or UP Northwest lines as alternatives.Metra Announcement
