BEVERLY — New schedules for Metra's Rock Island and Electric lines will go into effect Monday.

The agency announced last month it had finalized its revision of the Electric line's schedule, making several adjustments in response to customer feedback at informational meetings and via email.

Visit Metra's website for a complete list of the changes on the Electric line, including the restoration of one late-night outbound train on the South Chicago Branch.

Service on the electric line will also be restored Saturdays on the Blue Island Branch — albeit reduced to four inbound and four outbound trains.

As for Metra's Rock Island line, the midday express service will revert to local service, ending a yearlong pilot program. There are other minor adjustments to the weekday schedule, but no changes to the weekend schedule.

For a complete list of the changes on both lines, visit Metra's website. Printed schedules for both lines are also available in the stations this week.
