Once we contact you, you will have 2 business days to respond to our call or email regarding purchasing a permit. If we do not hear back from you within 2 business days, we will move on to the next applicant in line. Once two (2) attempts to contact you have gone unanswered, you will be removed from the wait list. Please keep in mind, you will not have the opportunity to request any lot, you will only be able to choose from what is available at the time we contact you. You may request a lot change in the future however.  Please see Lot Change Request information below.

Lot Change Request Instructions

You may request to be moved to a different commuter parking lot during renewal periods only. Once you receive your renewal form, return it to the Village of Lombard with a note stating which lot/s you would like to be moved to in order of preference. Requests are fulfilled on a first-come, first-served basis, based on availability. If we are unable to move you to your preferred lot, you will remain in your current lot and you must try again at the next renewal period.

Station Maintenance

The Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) maintains the outside of the station building, the tunnel, platforms, ramps and stairs.   This maintenance includes snow/ice and trash removal.  The UPRR is also responsible to enforce the smoking ban.  Metra uses the station but has no maintenance responsibilities.  The Village assists to remove graffiti, maintain security cameras, and remove trash from the tunnel.  The Village uses a contractor to maintain the landscaping and the street-level trash cans & sidewalks.  Please help by reporting maintenance needs to the responsible party.
