Richton Park is the penultimate station along the main branch of the Metra Electric line, in Richton Park, Illinois. It is located on Sauk Trail, east of Governor's Highway, and is 29.33 miles (47.20 km) away from the northern terminus at Randolph Street Station. In Metra's zone-based fare system, Richton Park is in zone F. The station has two tracks and one island platform, with one of the tracks ending at the station.
Richton Park Station was originally built by the Illinois Central Railroad in 1946, in order to be in close proximity to the south end of the "IC Electric" coach storage yard. It served as the terminus of the line until 1977, when the Illinois Regional Transportation Authority funded the construction of University Park Station. Today, Richton Park Station is a far more modern-looking structure. Parking is available on Sauk Trail between Governor's Highway and Richton Square Road, on Richton Road, Mill Drive, and along Tower Road.
