There are two Blue Island Metra Stations about a block apart, one on the Rock Island line and one on the Electric District line. Both stations provide service to downtown Chicago, though the commute time is 20 minutes shorter via the Rock Island line to the LaSalle Street Metra Station. Use the Electric District trains to reach the University of Chicago, Grant Park and Millennium Park.
