BEVERLY — Metra will operate on a special schedule Friday to accommodate Downtown commuters looking to get a head start on the Easter weekend.

The modified schedule is meant to help those who get out of work a bit early, as most lines will add trains or shift train schedules to provide more early afternoon departures.

A complete list of afternoon departures can be found on Metra's website.

“We hope that these early departures make things more convenient for our customers, and help them get a head start on family gatherings and other holiday plans,” said Don Orseno, Metra's executive director and chief financial officer.
