Millennium Station

A major renovation of the station emerged out of and coincided with the city of Chicago’s emergency repairs to the Randolph Street viaduct and its construction of Millennium Park starting in the late 1990s. After years of complex, subterranean work, the sleek new Millennium Station was dedicated in March 2007, although the partially completed station had been unveiled as early as 2004. With its assortment of food and retail shops, blue-terrazzo floor, larger concourses and waiting area and its location under Chicago’s vibrant park, Millennium has become a new jewel of the Metra system.

The station now serves the Metra Electric Line and the South Shore Line, which is operated by the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District. It serves about 20,000 passengers a day.

The waiting room doors are open daily from 5 a.m. to 12:50 a.m. Ticket agents are on duty Monday to Saturday from 5:55 a.m. to 12:50 a.m. and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 12:50 a.m.

A variety of CTA bus routes connect to the station, and CTA elevated and subway lines are a short walk away. The station has a conveniently placed CTA transit card vending machine. Taxis can be easily hailed in the area.

Millennium Station’s main entrance is at the intersection of Randolph and Michigan near the Chicago Cultural Center.
