54th/Cermak is a station on the Chicago Transit Authority's 'L' system, serving the Pink Line, and is the western terminus of this line. It is at Cermak Road between 54th and Laramie Avenues in Cicero, Illinois. It is the only terminal with only one track used for service. Trains board on the eastern half of 54th/Cermak station and unload on the western half. Previously known as the Cicero-Berwyn Terminal, it is located about 1 mile from the city of Berwyn. Originally, the line continued westward past this station to Oak Park Avenue in Berwyn, but that line has since been demolished and replaced with extended 21 bus service, which originally terminated at this station.
