Clyde station (Illinois)

Clyde is a closed station on Metra's BNSF Railway Line. The station was located at 29th Street and Austin Boulevard, in Cicero, Illinois. Clyde was 8.5 miles (13.7 km) from Union Station, the eastern terminus of the BNSF railway line.[1] In Metra's zone-based fare system, Clyde was located in zone B, on the west end of the Cicero Railroad Yard. Clyde closed on April 1, 2007, due to low ridership; to compensate for the loss of the station, Metra announced that it would rehabilitate the adjacent Cicero and LaVergne stations.[2]
