North Glenview Station is one of two commuter railroad stations on Metra's Milwaukee District/North Line in Glenview, Illinois. The station is located at 3000 Old Willow Road, is 19 miles (31 km) away from Union Station, the southern terminus of the line,[1] and serves commuters between Union Station and Fox Lake, Illinois. In Metra's zone-based fare system, North Glenview is in zone D.

It is proposed that the Amtrak trains which currently serve Glenview, one stop south, would shift here. This move would eliminate lengthy stops which block traffic on Glenview Road. This move would involve reconstruction of the North Glenview station to handle the additional traffic, and depends on commitments from Glenview, the Illinois General Assembly and Metra.[2]
