Congressman Lipinski Calls For Metra To Take Over Union Station

Illinois Congressman Dan Lipinski wants Amtrak to hand over control of Chicago’s Union Station to Metra. The Chicago Democrat, who serves on the Transportation Committee, asked for the turnover during a hearing today in Congress. Lipinski had issue with a huge service outage last February when a worker fell from a ladder and hit a circuit board. The impact turned off computers and led to delays that affected more than 60 thousand Chicago-area commuters. Lipinski also mentioned that Union Station also had a problem with falling concrete.
