Proposed routes[ edit ] Metra proposed two routes in the early s, SouthEast Service , which would connect some portions of the southern suburbs with downtown Chicago, and the Suburban Transit Access Route , which would connect various suburbs with each other without going into the downtown. Both of these proposals are defunct. Connections[ edit ] Transportation in Chicago consists of a public transportation infrastructure allowing for intermodal connections to local, regional, national and international transportation services. Parking lots are available adjacent to most suburban Metra stations for passengers connecting with their train by car. Most parking lots are operated by the municipality they are located in. Fees and fines are also assessed by the local municipality; however, parking is usually free on weekends and most holidays. Monthly pass holders are offered link-up options with these services. Most ‘L’ lines traverse the Loop allowing nearby access to all downtown Metra terminals.

The development came as no surprise to city lawyers, who have been working to stave off the onslaught of claims. In September, the Emanuel administration moved to pass an ordinance that gives those ticket holders affected by the errors a second chance to challenge their tickets retroactively, in some cases years after they had already paid their fines and late fees.
Lawyers for the Emanuel administration have tried to downplay the significance of the case, arguing that accelerating the time that people have to pay fines does not change the fact they were speeding or running a red light. But plaintiffs’ attorney Jacie Zolna argues that the tickets themselves are fatally flawed because the administration violated due process and should not be allowed a do-over.
He is suing to recover all fines and late fees associated with those tickets. A Tribune investigation found tens of thousands of tickets were issued improperly at malfunctioning cameras, where yellow lights were too short or city oversight was lacking.
