Mayfair is a Metra station, located on the Milwaukee District/North Line on the border between Albany Park and Portage Park community areas of Chicago. The station is officially located at 4357 North Cicero Avenue (Illinois Route 50), however the actual location is the northeast corner of West Pensacola and North Kilpatrick Avenues. It is 9.0 miles (14.5 km) away from Union Station, the southern terminus of the line,[1] and serves commuters between Union Station and Fox Lake, Illinois. In Metra's zone-based fare system, Mayfair is in zone B.

Transfers are available to the Blue Line at the nearby Montrose Avenue station, as well as CTA's bus system. However, while the line does have an at-grade junction with Union Pacific/Northwest Line just north of the station platforms, there are no direct connections from here to any of the Union Pacific / Northwest Line's stops within Albany Park.
