Prairie Street Station (also known as Prairie Street – Blue Island Station) is one of four Metra railroad stations in Blue Island, Illinois along the Beverly Branch of the Rock Island District Line, and five within Blue Island. It is 15.8 miles (25.4 km) from LaSalle Street, the northern terminus of the line, and is both located on and named after Prairie Street. In Metra's zone-based fare system, Prairie Street is in zone D.
Parking is available on both sides of the tracks at a dead end at Prairie Street, south of the Burr Oak Avenue Bridge, which also crosses the rush hour line and the freight yards between the two lines, the Burr Oak Yard on the north side of the bridge and the Iowa Interstate Railroad-Chicago Rail Link. Though the station house exists it contains no agent, and it is a flag stop. No bus connections are available.
