Dee Road is one of two commuter railroad stations on Metra's Union Pacific/Northwest line in the City of Park Ridge, Illinois. It is officially located at 881 North Dee Road, and lies 14.6 miles (23.5 km) from the Ogilvie Transportation Center in Chicago.[4] In Metra's zone-based fare system, Dee Road is in zone C.

Dee Road Station was rebuilt in 2006 as a replacement for the former Dee Road Station on the opposite side of Dee Road, by the Chicago and North Western Railway in 1967.

The smaller parking area between Dee Road and Rowe Avenue, where the old station used to be was recommended by Metra, as well as parking at nearby Park Ridge Station. Bus connections are provided by Pace.
