Parking lots not operated by municipalities or their vendors generally are operated by Central Parking. Central Parking operates parking facilities at select locations in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. Central offers both daily and monthly parking options to meet Metra riders' parking needs.
Additional Daily Fee Parking
If parking at your nearest Metra station is at capacity when you need it, check out the list here because another station may be just a short ride away that has additional daily fee parking. Listed by rail line, this list contains alternate stations that offer parking THROUGHOUT the day.
Central Parking locations accept the following payment methods:
Daily Parking – Cash payments deposited into pay stations or payment box at time of parking.
Monthly Parking – Register online and manage your account via the Central Parking website.
