Zion is a small commuter railroad station on Metra's Union Pacific/North Line located in Zion, Illinois, United States. It is located on 2501 South Eden Road, near the intersection with Shiloh Boulevard, is 42.1 miles (67.8 km) away from Ogilvie Transportation Center, the inbound terminus of the Union Pacific/North Line, and also serves commuters who travel north to Kenosha, Wisconsin. Parking is available on both sides of the tracks, and one of the parking lots is along South Eden Road at Shiloh Boulevard. In Metra's zone-based fare system, Zion is in zone I.
The structure at Zion Station is an unmanned decorative shelter. In the building are some seats and also some shelves for book exchange. It also serves as a stop for passengers who visit Illinois Beach State Park.
Many trains on the UP-N line do not serve Zion. Most trains terminate at Waukegan; Zion is most served during peak hours only, with a few weekend trains. This limited rail service makes this station an impractical method of reaching Chicago during off-peak hours. Passengers can take the 571 bus which goes to Waukegan.
