Metra Parking

Daily parking is available at the Antioch Metra Station for $1.50 per day.  Parking Spaces are assigned numbers, and there is a metal drop-box at the depot to submit your payment for your spot number.  There is no charge for handicapped parking.

Extended Parking
Extended parking is available by pre-paying for the number of days you plan on staying at the station.  To pay for your extended stay, you must submit your total payment for the length of time you will be parking at the station ($1.50/day). When placing your payment in the drop-box, include a note with your vehicle information (year, make, model, lic. plate), your spot number, and the length of time you plan on staying parked at the station.  This will ensure that you don’t get a ticket, and allows the police to monitor the vehicle after hours.

Parking Passes
Railway commuters may purchase a monthly parking pass for $30 per month at the Village Hall or via mail.  Monthly passes are not pro-rated, and may be purchased in advance for future months.
