Schiller Park Metra Station

Metra trains make regular stops at the Schiller Park Commuter Station on a Monday-to-Friday schedule. Having a station in town is of significant benefit to our residents and businesses.

The station building is located on the west side of the tracks along Ruby Street between 25th Avenue and Lawrence Avenue. The building is open between the hours of 5 a.m. and 10 p.m., Monday through Friday. The building's doors lock and unlock automatically at those times, and the building is locked throughout the weekend (because there are no trains running). The building is heated during the winter, and there is both inside and outside seating available. Please properly dispose of any garbage in the trash receptacles provided. If you notice any maintenance problems, such as a burned out light bulb or vandalism, please contact the Village at 847-678-2550 to report the problem.

Train Schedule

The schedule for Metra's North Central Service, which includes the trains stopping in Schiller Park, can be found on the Metra Rail Website.

Parking Lot Information

Payment for use of the station's parking lot is required by Village ordinance. The Village offers monthly parking passes for $35.00 with a discounted rate available of $25.00 per month if you purchase 3 months at a time. Please contact the Village Hall at (847) 678-2550 to buy a Metra Parking Pass. The Station's parking lot is closed from 2:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. daily, so anyone parking in the lot during the day will need to remove their vehicle before 2 a.m. that night to avoid getting a ticket or being towed. The Village of Schiller Park Metra Station parking lot is available for regular Metra users only and is not available for people using O'Hare Airport.

Overnight / Daytime Parking Pass Options

An Overnight Pass permits a patron to park their car in the lot overnight and/or over the weekend, as long as they display a valid pass ($30 per month in 3 month increments - $90.00) and park in the specially marked "Overnight Pass" parking spots.

A Daytime Pass is required for regular commuters using the Metra Train. Daytime Pass users will need to vacate the Metra parking lot each day before it closes as noted above. Daytime passes each cost $35.00 per month, and can be purchased in three (3) month increments at a discounted price of $75.00. However in the case of Overnight Passes there are only a small number of parking spaces available for Overnight Pass use so there are a limited number of Overnight passes available. If you are interested in a monthly Overnight Pass or a monthly Daily Pass, please contact the Village Hall at (847) 678-2550. Monthly Parking passes are not available to people seeking to leave their car while on an out-of-town trip via O'Hare Airport - they are for regular users of the Metra train service only.

Parking Fees

As indicated above the parking fee is $35.00 per month or $25.00 per month for three months. The lot will be monitored daily by the Police Department and cars that have not paid (or that are not parked in a proper parking spot) will be ticketed.
