Rep. Wehrli to Host BNSF Service Reliability Town Hall in Naperville on Jan. 26

In response to ongoing delays and other service disruptions along Metra’s BNSF Line, State Representative Grant Wehrli (R-Naperville) is hosting a town hall meeting on January 26 where information will be shared and residents can ask questions. The town hall meeting will take place from 8:00 AM until 10:00 AM at the Naperville Municipal Building (Council Chambers). The municipal building is located at 400 S. Eagle Street in Naperville.

“I hear almost daily from constituents who are displeased with the quality of Metra rail service along the BNSF line,” said Wehrli. “Delays have become the norm rather than the exception, and for those who live in the 41st District and rely on Metra to get them to and from work every day, frustration is extremely high.”

At the meeting, Wehrli will be joined by a panel of experts from BNSF Railway and Metra. A short informational presentation will be followed by a Q & A session.

“The BNSF Line is Metra’s busiest commuter line, and those rails run straight through the 41st District,” Wehrli said. “Thousands of my constituents are negatively affected by unreliable and late trains, and we need to get to the root of this problem so we can start formulating solutions. This town hall meeting brings key players together to ensure we are working toward reestablishing commuter train reliability in this area.”

RSVPs are not required for this meeting. For additional information, please contact the Wehrli office at (630) 696-4160.
