As Hoey & Farina previous discussed in Straight Track, high levels of diesel fumes were found on the platforms and inside the cars at the LaSalle Street Station, Ogilvie Transportation Center and the Electric District Millennium Terminal in Chicago. Diesel fumes exposure to railroad workers and commuters can pose elevated risks of cancer and respiratory diseases.

Metra Train Diesel Soot.

In response to the Chicago Tribunes' investigation in 2010, Metra has been conducting its own testing on the level of diesel fumes in these Chicago train stations and has recently announced its additional plans to:

  • Install More Efficient Air Filters on Train Cars
  • Use a Cleaner, Ultra-Low-Sulfur Diesel Fuel (Beginning April 1, 2011)
  • Continue to Test Air Quality
