Commuter, or Suburban Rail Passenger Train Services have played an important role in the Chicago Metro area for well over 100 years. Since the city and its suburbs are economically interdependent with one another, passenger service is crucial to the economic health of the entire Chicago area.
This book begins with a brief, detailed review of each of the many commuter services offered in the Chicago area before the development of the Regional Transit Authority, and moves on to detailed information of routes, train frequency, number of passengers, and physical equipment of the Metra and Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District (NICTD, South Shore) services.
Readers will also enjoy the Color Photo Gallery that concludes the book as well as the many photos throughout.
