Metra`s efforts to reform and modernize the Department began in October 2012, when a consultant was hired to conduct an assessment of the Department`s operations and capabilities and to help adopt best practices in rail public safety. Two years later, the report contained a long list of recommendations, and Metra hired Joseph Perez as the new leader to lead their adoption. Metra`s lost property offices are located near or near the ticketing areas in the downtown terminals for each line. We encourage people looking for lost items to stop by the offices to see if their items have been found. You can also call the office at the terminal in the city center used by your line. Metra and its rail service providers are not responsible for items left on trains or stations. Metra is always looking for talented people who can succeed in a challenging and fast-paced industry.
