Lake Bluff Metra Station is one of two railroad stations in the village of Lake Bluff, Illinois, on Metra's Union Pacific/North Line. It is officially located at 600 North Sheridan Road, is 30.2 miles (48.6 km) away from Ogilvie Transportation Center, the inbound terminus of the Union Pacific/North Line, and also serves commuters who travel north to Kenosha, Wisconsin. In Metra's zone-based fare system, Lake Bluff is in zone G.
The current station was built in 1904, and previously served the Chicago and North Western Railway before it was bought out by Union Pacific Railroad in 1995. Parking is available in front of the station on North Sheridan Road from the intersection of Scranton Avenue, and on Mawman Avenue off the southeast corner of Rockland Road. It was included in the National Register of Historic Places listing for the Lake Bluff Uptown Commercial Historic District in 2006.
The station is unstaffed.
The Union Pacific Lakes Sub parallels the station's trackage and connects with the line north of the station. It follows the line to a curve north of the Waukegan station, where the line ends. Union Pacific has a railyard in Waukegan that services Metra trains as well as their own.
