Daily Fee Parking now Pays by License Plate Number

Daily Fee commuters should now use their license plate to pay for parking at the Metra Station. When entering a license plate, be sure to not include any spaces or special characters. Designated parking areas (permit vs. daily fee) will also be eliminated at this time. Commuters can purchase their daily fee parking space at any of the four pay kiosks north of the railroad tracks and also on the Passport App.

The village wants to remind commuters to be patient at the pay kiosks and wait for your transaction to complete. Also, please do not pull out your receipt before it completes printing. If you feel that your transaction has not completed, please contact the Transportation Department at 847.923.3861 to report your issues before attempting another transaction.

Parking Information

Ample paid vehicular parking and free bicycle parking is available on the north side (Boomers Stadium) of the train tracks. Overnight parking is allowed and the parking lot is not free on the weekends.

Parking on the south side of the train tracks is outside of the Village of Schaumburg, owned by Metra, and operated and maintained by SP Plus Parking.
