TRI-STATE TOUR
Taking the Metra Train from Waukegan


You can end your ride at rest stop 4 in Waukegan and take the Metra train back to downtown Chicago or up to Kenosha if you want to don't want to ride all the way to Kenosha or don't want to wait for our return transportation service from Kenosha to depart after the route closes. The Waukegan Metra Train Station is only 0.2 miles from rest stop 4 and you can easily walk or ride there under 10 minutes.

If you want to take the Metra train back to Chicago from Waukegan and also still complete a century, you will still be able to do so by riding up to Kenosha, stopping at the rest stop there, then riding back to rest stop 4. Riders who plan on completing a century this way must depart Kenosha by 3:00 pm in order to arrive back in Waukegan by the rest stop closing time.
