Metra reports its on-time performance has improved since the severe weather of winter has passed. According to the Chicago Sun-Times' Early & Often:
"With brutal winter weather-related problems behind it, Metra’s on-time performance improved year-over-year for the first time in six months in April.
Metra enjoyed 96.8 percent on-time performance in April, up from 95.7 percent a year earlier, according to a report given to Metra board members at their meeting Friday.
October was the last reported year-over-year improvement, according to spokesman Michael Gillis."
