Cumberland Station is one of two commuter railroad stations on Metra's Union Pacific/Northwest line in the City of Des Plaines, Illinois. It is officially located at 475 East Northwest Highway (US 14), and lies 18.2 miles (29.3 km) from the Ogilvie Transportation Center in Chicago.[3] In Metra's zone-based fare system, Cumberland is in zone D.

While Metra gives the address as 475 East Northwest Highway, the main parking area is across the tracks and is only accessible from East Golf Road between a Union Pacific Freight Line crossing, and the intersection of Wolf and Seeger Roads, where East Golf Road turns under both the UP-NW Line and Northwest Highway. Along Northwest Highway itself, there is some parking along the eastbound lane between the State Street-Cornell Avenue intersection and the station house west of the bridge over East Golf Road.
