Kostner, formerly known as Kildare, is a station on the Chicago Transit Authority's 'L' system, serving the Pink Line. It is located in the K-Town neighborhood of the North Lawndale community area, often just referred to as Lawndale. Kostner station was originally opened as Kildare. During reconstruction in 2003, the station was renamed Kostner because the primary entrance was moved one block west to Kostner Avenue and the Kildare entrance became an auxiliary entrance.
This is the first station outbound on the Pink Line to be located at ground level.
