Maywood Opens New Metra Station

Metra commuter rail in Chicago recently opened a new station in the village of Maywood, replacing an existing, smaller outdoor shelter.

In addition to providing protection from the elements, the 878.5-square-foot building on the Union Pacific West Line is heated, including its floor. The $2.1 million project also features 40 nearby parking spots.

“I am so pleased to cut the ribbon for our new Metra commuter station,” said Maywood Mayor Edwenna Perkins. “The station is lovely and quaint and harkens back to the glory days of Maywood that we will bring back. It will shelter our citizens as they wait for the train, and it will give others riding through another look at our town.”

Metro Executive Director/Chief Executive Officer Don Orseno added, “We couldn’t be happier that the village of Maywood has provided this wonderful new facility for the benefit of their citizens and our customers. … We hope this furthers Maywood’s economic development efforts and grows our ridership.”

Metra Executive Director/CEO Don Orseno spoke at ribbon-cutting ceremonies for the new Maywood Station.
