The Summit Amtrak station is a train station in Summit, Illinois, United States served by Amtrak, the national railroad passenger system, through Amtrak Illinois' Lincoln Service. The station also serves Metra's Heritage Corridor commuter line, which operates only during morning and evening rush hours in peak direction. It is 11.9 miles (19.2 km) away from Union Station, the northern terminus of the line.[2] Summit is also the closest Metra (and Amtrak) station to Midway Airport.

Summit is peculiar for a Metra station in that it is served by more Amtrak trains (four trains per direction throughout the day) than by Metra trains (three inbound morning and three outbound evening rush hour tains). This was also a stop for the Ann Rutledge until April 2007.
