Lombard is a station on Metra's Union Pacific/West Line, located in Lombard, Illinois. The station is located at 9 South Main St. in Lombard. Lombard is located 19.9 miles (32.0 km) away from Ogilvie Transportation Center, the eastern terminus of the West Line.[3] In Metra's zone-based fare system, Lombard is in zone D.

Lombard station is located above ground level and consists of two side platforms. Three tracks run between the platforms, though one does not access the station. There is a station house next to the inbound (north) track, which is open from 5:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. Tickets are available at the station house on weekdays. Eight commuter parking lots operated by the City of Lombard are near the station; three of the lots require quarterly permits, and the other five require a daily fee of $1.25.[4]

On June 3, 2015, a pedestrian tunnel connecting the two platforms went into service after the morning rush. This tunnel replaced the existing track-level crossing between platforms for increased pedestrian and commuter safety.[5]
