Metra has informed the City of Geneva that the rail agency plans to install platform number signs along the Union Pacific West line, including Geneva, the week of March 29.
For various reasons, Metra has to occasionally implement operational changes that require trains to use the opposite track and station platform for passenger boarding and alighting. To help streamline customer messaging and enhance safety, Metra will be adding the platform signs at stations with more than one platform. Metra provided more info and renderings in a letter
to local municipalities.
Union Pacific will be providing flaggers when Metra's contractor, Design Group Signage, will be installing the signs at Geneva's train station.
