Schiller Park Metra Station

Metra trains make regular stops at the Schiller Park Commuter Station on a Monday-to-Friday schedule. The Village is very pleased that Metra service to Schiller Park is operating as it was the realization of a major long term goal for the Village. 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.

Parking Lot Information


Payment for use of the station's parking lot is required by Village ordinance. The parking fee is $1.50 per day, and must be paid each day using the free "Passport Parking" App. (Available on the App Store (Apple) or Google Play Store (Android)) or you can pay via phone at (847) 380-4332. There is a 37 cents convenience fee per day for using the Passport Parking App. Further details on this process can be found below. The Station's parking lot is closed from 2 a.m. to 5 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


The Village has a monthly Overnight or Daytime Parking Pass program that allows regular Metra users to purchase either a monthly Overnight Pass or monthly Daytime Pass. 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 and park in the specially marked "Overnight Pass" parking spots. A Daytime Pass is an alternative for regular commuters to paying the daily fees using the Passport Parking App. Daytime Pass users will need to vacate the Metra parking lot each day before it closes as noted above. These passes each cost $30 per month, and must be purchased in three (3) month increments. 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 Carmela Meli, in the Community Development offices at 847-671-8555. 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 $1.50 per day. When parking a patron is required to enter the specific number of the parking spot they park in when they are paying their parking fee (or properly display a monthly pass in their window that was purchased from the Village). 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. The Passport Parking software keeps track of the parking spots that have been paid for that day, so anyone using the lot is strongly encouraged to pay the $1.50 fee and enter the correct spot number of where they parked in the Passport App to avoid a ticket.
