I take the Metra almost every day to school and I am extremely grateful for this convienence. Metra is a great alternative to driving in crazy traffic and then trying to find a reasonable parking rate/lot.
Patrons can purchase a one ride ticket, a ten ride ticket, and a monthly pass. On the weekends a $5 unlimited ride ticket is also available and it's a great bargain.
The cars are also kept up pretty nicely and I have never had any problems with other patrons.

If you plan on staying in the suburbs of Chicago, the Metra is a great way to get into the city. Parking is expensive in Chicago and Metra makes it easy to get where you're going without putting a strain on your wallet. On the weekends you can pay $5 and get unlimited rides into the city. With the family fares kids under 7 ride free! The trains are clean and comfortable and my kids just loved watching our ride into the city.

I live in Los Angeles. Anyone who's visited here or been here for any length of time either without a car or visiting as a tourist can definitely attest to the fact that the public transportation here is seriously lacking. The buses are never on time, you wouldn't want to ride them anyway and the trains / subway system are not widely used because the stations are spread out so far apart. For the first time, I had the opportunity to experience the EL train in Chicago. It was very cool! An attendant gets off the train to sell you tickets at your stop or you can pay when they roam the cars (It's $2 extra). The cost is very nice compared to what you'd pay if you wanted to drive to Wacker Blvd and wander about the Taste for a day. Or roam up to the Art Institute of Chicago and tour downtown all morning. I think I paid $6 for a round trip ticket and took one of the free trolleys to the Taste as well as the Art Museum (among other things). Later that week, I had to meet someone there and missed a train so I drove up and parked under Wacker Drive. By the time I'd left (comprable to the amount of time I'd spent the other days I spent in downtown Chicago) I incured around $17 or so in parking fees. Also figure in the cost of gas, as well. That's around $15 I could have spent on little replicas of FLW stained glass windows.... :P

PROS: inexpensive, efficient, effortless
CONS:
