Glen Metra Station

Glen Metra Station

There are two Metra Stations in Glenview. One is located in Downtown Glenview by Lehigh Avenue and Glenview Road.  The newer station is directly within The Glen. It has ample parking with fees as low as $2 a day. 

Coffee and breakfast rolls are sold inside the Metra Station.  The Glen Metra Station will protect you from inclement weather, whether that be the cold, snow or rain that comes to our area. An express train in the morning during the week can get you downtown in 30 minutes.

There are different ticket prices depending if you are traveling the Metra daily or using the train occasionally. You cannot purchase a ticket at The Glen station but once aboard the train the conductor will stop by your seat to obtain money for your trip.  If you are going down to Union Station in the loop, I recommend purchasing future fares in the terminal, especially for a return trip.

If you are going down to Union Station in the loop, I recommend purchasing future fares in the terminal, especially for a return trip by train. If you do not but the ticket the conductor will charge a $3.00 penalty. This is imposed for not buying at Union Station where agents are on duty.
