New Lenox is a commuter railroad station along Metra's Rock Island District line in New Lenox, a southern suburb of Chicago, Illinois, United States. The station is officially located on 300 North Church Street, and lies 34 miles (55 km) away from LaSalle Street, the northern terminus of the line, however parking is available between Church Street and far northeast of Haven Avenue. It is also the penultimate station along the RID line before reaching the end of the line at Joliet Union Station. In Metra's fare-based system, New Lenox Station is in zone G.
