Oak Park is a Metra commuter railroad station in Oak Park, Illinois, just west of Chicago. It is served by Metra's Union Pacific/West Line, with service east to Ogilvie Transportation Center in Chicago and as far west as Elburn, Illinois. Travel time to Chicago is 16 to 20 minutes. The station is located along North Boulevard between Marion Street and Harlem Avenue, Oak Park's western border with River Forest and Forest Park. The Chicago Transit Authority's Green Line ends at Harlem/Lake and is connected directly to this station at Marion Street. Downtown Oak Park, which includes a large shopping district spread over both Oak Park and River Forest, is nearby with many stores centered on Harlem Avenue and Lake Street.

Amenities[edit]

A small convenience store is located on the main concourse.

The north platform, which services inbound trains, is sheltered and has assorted benches. The island platform to the south, which services outbound trains, has benches, though the access ramp from the concourse is sheltered and enclosed.
