Expect Metra Delays Of Up To 15 Minutes Throughout This Heat Wave
Not only is it important to stay hydrated and generally apocalypse-ready during this time—you should also leave a little extra time for Metra trips. Trains will be running at lower speeds in the heat, Metra announced in a statement, resulting in 10- to 15-minute delays. The slower speeds help "compensate for heat related stress on our track, switches, and signals," Metra explained.
They "regret any inconvenience," though, so that's nice.
