Gresham is a station on the Rock Island District Metra line, which runs between Joliet, Illinois and downtown Chicago, Illinois at the LaSalle Street Station. It is in Zone B according to Metra fee schedules based on its 9.8 miles (15.8 km) distance from downtown Chicago.[1] It is in the community area of Auburn Gresham, on the south side of Chicago. The Rock Island service splits here; most trains travel west over the Suburban Line (via Brainerd), while some rush-hour trains head due south for Blue Island (via Longwood). The SouthEast Service will also use this station.[2]

Gresham Station is built on an embankment between bridges over West 87th Street and Vincennes Avenue. Parking is mainly street-side, and there are parking lots on the corner of Vincennes Avenue and Halsted Street, and on Genoa Avenue between 88th and 87th Street.
