Kids under 11 years old can ride the Metra for free all summer, the rail agency announced Wednesday.
The more elaborate systems offer investigators more information as they try to pinpoint the cause of an accident.
The new schedule, which wouldn’t affect ticket prices, could be finalized and implemented by late summer.
A 35-year-old woman fatally struck by a Metra train last month in northwest suburban Woodstock has been identified.
An Amtrak employee was shot Tuesday afternoon at a station in west suburban Naperville that Amtrak shares with Metra.
Starting May 1, Metra will begin a 6-month trial that will allow pets on trains during off-peak weekday hours — but only small ones in a pet carrier.
The pedestrian, a 62-year-old Summit woman, was killed, according to the La Grange Police Department.
