    A relative of mine was taken to the hospital because she was left on the hot train for 2 hours. She had an asthma attack . the ambulance took her to st Bernards . not to be single individual from metra has checked in on her. Not one single metra rep has even offered her any suggestions on how she would get home…. Thanks metra for your concerns
