Multiple west suburban Metra trains were experiencing delays because of mechanical problems Monday morning.

Inbound trains on BNSF RailWay line were operating up to 20 minutes behind schedule as of 8:30 a.m. because of mechanical problems, according to service alerts from Metra.

Trains on the Union Pacific West line were also experiencing delays up to 20 minutes because of a mechanical failure and a vehicle that had previously gotten stuck on the tracks near Maywood, Metra said.

Riders are encouraged to listen to station announcements for the most up-to-date delay and service information.
