Grand/Cicero is a commuter railroad station in the Austin neighborhood on the West Side of Chicago. The station is located at the corner of West Grand Avenue and North Cicero Avenue. Service to the station began on December 11, 2006. The station is served solely by the Milwaukee District/West Line.

The opening of Grand/Cicero was accompanied by the closure of two other stations in the Hermosa and Cragin neighborhoods. These stations were located nearby in residential neighborhoods.cite web |url=http://metrarail.com/Service_Advisories/station_projects.html |date=2006-10 |accessdate=2006-12-11 |title=Metra - Station and Parking Construction Advisories |author=Metra] According to Metra, the station is also in the vicinity of a section of the Belt Railway of Chicago.

Chicago's first Wal-Mart, at 1657 N. Kilpatrick Avenue, opened just south of this station in September 2006.
