Oak Forest Train Station
The Metra train station at 159th Street and Cicero Avenue, along the Metra Rock Island line, is a state-of-the-art train station with a geothermal heating system that provides heat to not only the station but a warming shelter for our commuters. The station includes bike parking and lockers, restroom facilities, indoor/outdoor seated waiting areas, and a convenient drop-off/pick-up zone.
The station was built in 2013 with $2.5 million in state and federal grants as well as tireless support from the late Illinois State Senator Maggie Crotty, Congressman Bobby Rush, Cook County Commissioner Joan Patricia Murphy, Metra, the Regional Transportation Authority, South Suburban Mayors and Managers Association, and the Illinois Department of Transportation.
Daily & Handicap Parking
The parking lots at Oak Street, 157th Street and Waverly Avenue are the main lots for daily parking. Accessible, handicapped parking is available directly adjacent to the Metra station, and a drop-off/pick-up zone is also available in front of the train station entrance.
If you are unsure about where you should park or questions about handicap accessibility, please call Oak Forest Public Works at 708- 535-4090.
