Project Description

This project will design, purchase, and install new digital train tracking displays and backlit station identification signs. Video boards will display real-time train tracking and service alerts as well as other visual information. At least one sign is planned to be installed at and or near the primary entrance to Metra's five downtown Chicago terminals. New train tracking displays will improve our communication with the customer and better accommodate ESL and/or non-English speakers and improve ADA compliance. Backlit station identification signs will greet Metra riders as they board and depart the terminal stations. This is a multi-year, multi-phase project that will fund design engineering services and any environmental analyses as required by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Construction funds are provided in later years.
