    Ticket agent isn't there in the afternoons so you'll need cash to buy your ticket on the train.

    Park free from 6pm til 2am on weekdays, and park free 6am til 2am on weekends. Don't park there overnight or you'll get a ticket.

    Don't run across the tracks in front of a train! You will get kicked off.

    If you don't get there early enough parking is hectic. The parking meters should accept credit cards but they do take dollars and change. They all don't work properly. The line can get extremely long.

    Parking is a bit Archaic. Credit cards should be excepted and change should be given.

    Park here past 2am = $25 ticket! Other train stations let you leave your car overnight. There were no signs saying I should not park here after 2am. It just said pay to park til 2am. Misleading...

    696 Pace bus coming from Schaumburg is not in sync with 4:47pm and 5:30pm to Chicago. Its 5 min later than Metra departure. 45 min wait

    Early in the morning during Spring/Sunmer, you can see the horses practicing. Pretty cool actually.

    Express trains to Chicago load on center track platform. Check schedule, look for X next to train time.

    Inbound trains heading towards the city will always board on the station-side platform. Trains heading outbound towards the suburbs will always board on the central "island" platform.

    Re: peter...It is my understanding (through local police officers) that the cameras do work, however, they may not necessarily be monitored.

    Although the covered bike rack appears to have a security camera, it might not work. My repeated requests to A.H. Sgt. Mike Hernandez to confirm have gone unanswered, while bikes continue to be stolen

    I hate hat the outbound 7:55 shows up at the same time as the IB 8:01. So leave early or you'll be cut off and miss it!
