Metra Adds Express Service on Rock
Posted on Monday August 03, 2020
Metra has added express trains to its Rock Island schedule. Two inbound and two outbound express trains are now included in the mix of weekday options for Mokena commuters.

New inbound express offerings include a 6:45 a.m. departure from Joliet that makes all stops to Tinley Park/80th Avenue (including downtown Mokena and Hickory Creek), then expresses to LaSalle Street, arriving at 7:42 a.m.  A second inbound express train will depart Joliet at 3:15 p.m. and make all stops to Blue Island/Vermont Street, then make a flag stop at 35th Street/Lou Jones before arriving at LaSalle Street Station at 4:25 p.m.

New outbound express options incorporate a 1:40 p.m. departure from LaSalle Street that makes a flag stop at 35th Street/Lou Jones, expresses to Blue Island/Vermont Street, and then makes all stops afterwards, arriving at Joliet at 2:50 p.m.  A second outbound express train will depart LaSalle Street Station at 5:25 p.m., express to Tinley Park/80th Avenue, and make all remaining stops (including Hickory Creek and downtown Mokena) before arriving at Joliet at 6:26 p.m.

As a reminder, Metra is now offering a $10 All-Day Pass.  The pass, which can be purchased through the Ventra app, provides a “touch less, pay less” way to ride the Rock safely and affordably.  It will be available through Labor Day.
