West Pullman Station is a commuter rail station along the Blue Island Branch of the Metra Electric line in the West Pullman neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois. It is located over Halsted Street halfway between 120th and 122nd Streets, and is 16.68 miles (26.84 km) away from the northern terminus at Randolph Street Station.[1] In Metra's zone-based fare system, West Pullman Station is in zone D.

Although the rest of the Blue Island Branch contains only one track, there are two tracks at West Pullman Station. The only other station along the branch that has two tracks is the terminus at Blue Island Station itself. One parking lot exists on the north side of the tracks along the southbound lane of Halsted Street. Due to its close proximity to the outskirts of Chicago, the station provides bus connections from both the Chicago Transit Authority and Pace suburban bus system.
