[ARCHIVED] Metra Hosts Open House Feb. 15 Regarding Fare Recommendations

Village of Westmont
Date Issued: January 25, 2018

Metra is hosting a series of public open houses in February throughout the Chicagoland area regarding proposed changes to their fare structure. In the summer of 2016, Metra began a study to evaluate their fees and determine opportunities for potential changes. Their work included conducting a survey of Metra customers in the spring of 2017. Based on survey results and discussions with Metra’s Board of Directors, several changes to their fare structure are now being considered. Metra is asking the public to provide feedback on the proposed changes.

Eight open houses will be held around the Chicago region beginning February 1 to present the changes to the public and seek feedback. An open house will be held in our area on Thursday, February 15 from 4-7 p.m. at the Clarendon Hills Village Hall, 1 N. Prospect Avenue. Visit for a list of all open house dates and locations.

Customers who are unable to attend one of the open houses can review the study recommendations at and provide comments online. You may also contact Metra at to provide additional comments. Please visit for additional information regarding the proposed changes.
