A stop will be added to an outbound BNSF Line train starting on the morning of Monday, Nov. 7 to aid students traveling from LaGrange to Benet Academy in Lisle.

Outbound BNSF Line Train No.1205, which departs from Union Station at 6:20 a.m., will add a stop at LaGrange at 6:41 a.m. and then run express to Downers Grove, Belmont, Lisle, Naperville, Route 59 and Aurora.

The change was made at the request of LaGrange area parents who asked Metra if it could provide a travel option for students. Metra and BNSF Railway determined the stop could be added without impacting other trains. The change takes effect Nov. 7.
