Vernon Township's Prairie View Metra Station
The Prairie View Metra Train Station is the only station owned and maintained by a township. Other stations in the area are owned and operated by the villages in which they reside. The Prairie View Station parking lot currently has over 400 parking spaces available on a daily basis. With the addition of the second track, 200 new spaces were added on the East side of the tracks with the remaining 200 spaces on the West side of the station. Daily parking is $1.50. The township offers annual, semi annual and quarterly parking permits. Permits are not required but offer commuters the convenience of not having to pay daily. Permit prices vary per time period.
As of August 1, 2011, commuters can now use a credit card, debit card or cash to pay for their daily parking. The automated pay station is located near the main building.
If you are unable to pay for parking before you board a train, you can PAY BY PHONE. Just call (877) 727-5004 and reference Zone # 831 for payment.
