Train Station Access
Metra BNSF Line Proposed Schedule Changes
Metra has released a proposed weekday schedule revision for the BNSF Line. These proposed changes are a result of Metra's implementing Positive Train Control (PTC) on this line, a federally mandated safety system that will automatically stop a train if the engineer fails to obey a signal or exceeds the speed limit. Metra is also taking this opportunity to address other issues, such as overcrowding at the Naperville and Route 59 stations.
The City of Naperville is served by two commuter rail stations: the Naperville Metra Station, located at 105 E. 4th Ave., and the Route 59 Metra Station, located at 1090 N. Route 59, Aurora. A number of transportation options are available for accessing the train stations.
Parking is provided at both train stations. A quarterly commuter parking permit or payment of a daily fee is required when parking at either station Monday through Friday between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. Parking at the station after 6 p.m. on weekdays and on weekends is free. Maps of the City's parking facilities are provided below.
