Barrington is a station on Metra's Union Pacific/Northwest Line located in Barrington, Illinois. The station is located at 201 South Spring Street in Barrington, and is 31.5 miles (50.7 km) from Ogilvie Transportation Center, the southern terminus of the Union Pacific/Northwest Line.[3] In Metra's zone-based fare structure, Barrington is located in Zone G. Barrington has two tracks and two side platforms; it is the innermost station on the Union Pacific/Northwest Line without a third express track, which begins about a quarter mile southeast of the station near Baker Lake. A station house where tickets may be purchased is on the inbound platform. Parking is available at the station.
