The Metra train system in Chicago has a new website. It’s pretty nice. They have individual pages for each station with a little bit of info on each station.
I wanted to take their idea a bit further and bring some community into their pages. Here’s an email I sent to Metra:
I love the new Metra site. I really like the new pages for each station. You know what would be really interesting? If you linked to riders blogs that use that station.
For instance. the Ravenswood station on the UP-N is my station. When you add my link, please point the URL to www.spudart.org. I love the Ravenswood station. To have my blog link on there would be an honor. I’m sure many of the other riders who use that station would think so as well.
Oh and then I sent another email to them (using a different email address to disguise myself):
Does your new site sell conductor hats? I’d like to have one. Thank you.
Odd. I haven’t heard responses from either message.
