Bellwood is a Metra commuter railroad station in Bellwood, a western suburb of Chicago. It is served by the Union Pacific/West Line. Trains go east to Ogilvie Transportation Center in Chicago and as far west as Elburn, Illinois. Travel time to Ogilvie is 26 to 33 minutes, depending on the train.

The station is at Frederick Avenue and Erie Street. To the south there is a parking lot and a residential neighborhood of single-family homes. A large freight railroad yard is north of the station. Immediately to the west there is a highway overpass that carries Mannheim Road over the freight yard. Pace suburban buses stop on Mannheim Road and on St. Charles Road, one block to the south of the station. To the east of the station is the Indiana Harbor Belt railroad bridge over the UP-W line that Union Pacific trains cross over to go into Proviso Yard.
