Vernon Hills Metra Station
Welcome to the Vernon Hills Station on the Metra North Central Service line. Service is provided from Antioch to Chicago’s Union Station, Monday through Friday. A stop at O’Hare Airport Remote Parking Lot F provides access to airline terminals.
Daily Fee Parking
The parking lot has 680 parking spaces. Vernon Hills, like all communities on the North Central Service line, will charge a daily fee of $1.75 per space. An electronic fare box system is used for daily fee parking located next to the station house. Fees are collected on a daily basis and fines assessed for persons failing to pay the proper fee. To avoid fines, please remember your parking space number when making payment. There is no fee for authorized individuals parking in designated handicap parking spaces.
For any problems or issues directly related to the electronic fare boxes please call the Deputy Communications Supervisor at 847-247-4897.
"Pay to Park" Machines
Three ‘pay to park’ machines have been installed near the station. The automated pay stations are clearly marked with simple instructions: however, you might want to allow a little time to get used to the system until everyone becomes familiar with the new machines.
Parking Lot Security
The parking lot is patrolled daily by the Vernon Hills Police. However, as in any public parking lot, please exercise normal precautions. Lock your vehicle and take the key. Place all valuables and personal belongings out of sight. The village assumes no liability for parked vehicles.
For any problems or issues directly related to the electronic fare boxes please call the Deputy Communications Supervisor at 847-247-4897. If you have any questions/comments about the facilities you can email the village or call 847-367-3726. The parking lot and station are operated by the Village of Vernon Hills and the train service is provided by Metra at 312-322-6777.
