Elgin is one of three stations on Metra's Milwaukee District/West in Elgin, Illinois. The station is 36.6 miles (58.9 km) away from Union Station, the eastern terminus of the line.[1] In Metra's zone-based fare system, Elgin is in zone H.

The Elgin Metra station was to also serve as a stop on the revival of Black Hawk Amtrak service between Chicago, Rockford and Dubuque, that was supposed to begin in 2015,[2] but has since been put on hold for further review by IDOT by Governor Bruce Rauner, and it is unknown whether it will proceed.[3] The original proposal for the route was to have a station in South Elgin.

Weekend trains on the Milwaukee District West terminate here.
