Cicero is a station on the 'L' system, serving the Blue Line's Forest Park branch. It is the westernmost station situated in the median of the Eisenhower Expressway in the Austin neighborhood. Originally Cicero had an additional entrance at Lavergne Avenue, but this was closed on May 16, 1977, by the CTA as a cost-cutting measure. The structure for this exit still stands but it is closed to the public.

This is the last station on the Forest Park branch within the Chicago city limits.
