Metra To Hear From Public At Annual Meeting

Each year, Metra holds 2 days of open meetings around the region to discuss the upcoming budget and take questions from the public. It comes at a time when state dollars are harder to come by, fares are going up, and many riders complaining about the service.

PS Sriraj, director of the Urban Transportation Center at University of Illinois at Chicago, joins us to talk about the current state of Metra and the challenges it faces in the future.
