The 59th Street Metra station is a railway station serves the Metra Electric Line in Chicago, Illinois, United States. The station looks over 59th street, originally the University of Chicago's southern border, and the Midway Plaisance. Trains run between Millennium Station downtown and University Park, Blue Island, and the Chicago's neighborhood of South Chicago, the three southern branches. Before the 57th Street Station to the immediate north was rebuilt into a major station in 2002, all express trains served 59th Street and the station had a staffed ticket window.
Although the station is officially titled "59th Street-University of Chicago", the majority of University of Chicago and Hyde Park traffic is now served by the 57th Street Station; only some express trains stop at 59th Street. It is more dilapidated than the modern 57th street station and there have been discussions to demolish it.
