In order to be more transparent, the Metra Board is taking their meetings on the road and they recently stopped by DuPage County, a major commuter hub.
It was the first time the board held a meeting outside of Chicago.
Former DuPage County Board member and Naperville resident John Zediker currently sits on the board and thinks bringing the meeting to the people is a good idea.
The board unanimously voted to approve a new measure that would require all Metra employees, including board members, to report when people ask them about employment with the company.
The records would be public knowledge available under the Freedom of Information Act.
The board is hoping to hold more meetings around their service area in the future.
