Metra Suspends Service Monday, June 1, Due To Unrest

Metra announced late Sunday that it is suspending all service on Monday, June 1.

The Metra alert was issued at 9:23 p.m. Sunday.

The alert does not specifically mention the curfews and looting reported in Chicago and Aurora in the wake of protests regarding the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

The Metra alert says the suspension of service is “for the safety of the public and our employees, and because of municipal travel restrictions that are limiting the ability of our workers to reach job sites.”
