Metra Electric: Proposal to expand service to south side & south suburbs #Ward09

The above segment aired on Chicago Tonight earlier this week. The plan proposed by Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle to create a pilot proposal to expand Metra Electric service to the south side and south suburbs. Unforunately newly minted Mayor Lori Lightfoot is opposed fearing a potential drop in CTA ridership.

Chicago Tonight's Carol Marin speaks with Andrea Read co-chair of Coalition for a Better Metra Electric and executive director of the Greater Roseland Chamber of Commerce.
