Metra Rail

The Metra System

There are a lot of interesting, educational and just plain fun things to do in Northeast Illinois and Metra can get you where you want to go.

The 495-mile Metra system serves 230 stations in the counties of Cook, DuPage, Lake, Will, McHenry and Kane. On Metra you can reach Chicago's beautiful lakefront, museums, zoos, sporting events, shops and restaurants, concerts, special events, schools and colleges as well as quaint, historic suburbs and small towns. In some cases, Metra can take you practically to the front door - in other cases, your destination is easily in reach via Pace buses, and/or CTA buses and trains.

To view a list of attractions or venues that are easy to get to from our downtown stations, click here.

To see what some of the most popular venues are from our outlying stations, click here.

Remember, on weekends and holidays, all youngsters 12-17 ride for half fare. Plus, family fares allow kids under 12 to ride free when accompanied by a fare paying adult.

A small group of adults can save 15% using a 10-ride ticket when traveling together. Or, get a group of 25 or more together and save even more on a special outing.

The schedules, fares and other arrangements are subject to change without notice. Neither the contract carrier, Metra, Pace nor the RTA assumes responsibility for errors in timetables, nor for inconvenience or damage resulting from missed stops, missed trains, delayed trains, cancelled trains, failure to make connections or shortages of equipment.
