Ravinia is a station on Metra's Union Pacific/North Line. The station is located at 510 Roger Williams Avenue in Highland Park, Illinois. In Metra's zone-based fare structure, Ravinia is located in zone E. Ravinia is 21.5 miles (34.6 km) away from Ogilvie Transportation Center in downtown Chicago, the inbound terminus of the line.[1]


The Ravinia station consists of two grade-level side platforms which serve the inbound and outbound tracks. Since the Union Pacific/North Line operates on a left-hand main, the inbound platform is on the east side and the outbound is on the west. A station house is on the inbound platform and is open from 5:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. There is no ticket agent at Ravinia, so tickets must be purchased on board the train. A parking lot is located on the east side of the station; on Ravinia Festival concert dates, a bus is available between the lot and Ravinia Park. The Green Bay Trail runs parallel to the Union/Pacific North Line at Ravinia and is accessible from the station.
