Lemont is a station on Metra's Heritage Corridor in Lemont, Illinois. The station is 25.3 miles (40.7 km) away from Union Station, the northern terminus of the line.[3] In Metra's zone-based fare system, Lemont is in zone E.

Lemont Station was originally built by the Chicago and Alton Railroad in 1859 and designed in a manner similar to that of Lockport Station. The tracks run parallel to the Illinois and Michigan Canal, and shares the right-of-way with Amtrak's Lincoln Service and Texas Eagle trains, however, no Amtrak trains stop here.
