The SouthEast Service is a proposed commuter rail line which would be provided and operated by Metra in Chicago, Illinois, and its southern suburbs. The route of the proposed line would use tracks owned by CSX Transportation and the Union Pacific Railroad, but the service would not be operated by either of them.
Its northern terminus would be LaSalle Street Station in downtown Chicago. The line would then traverse Chicago's southern neighborhoods and its southern and far southern suburbs to Balmoral Park south of Crete, Illinois. Its average daily ridership is projected to be 9000.
Proposed Station Stops
