Commuter Parking

Where can I park when I take the train into Chicago?

Parking is limited around the Geneva train station. Daily parking lots cost $2 per day in the parking deck (now 540 spaces with the third-tier expansion) and $1.75 per day in the overflow lot off of Route 31. Daily parking on normal workdays in the garage fills up by 7 a.m.

There are three city-owned permit lots for regular commuters, which are identified in grey on the commuter parking map. The cost for a three-month permit is $100 for Geneva residents and $125 for non-residents. Currently there is a 1-year waiting list for these permits. You can find a parking permit registration form online or pick one up at the Geneva Police Department, 20 Police Plaza. The completed form must be returned to the Police Department by mail or in person.

There is free parking on the old Seigle property bordered by South, Fourth, Crescent and Third streets in the downtown. However, there is no parking allowed between 2 and 8:30 a.m. Monday through Friday.

Parking is free in the parking deck during the following periods:

  • 4 to 11:59 p.m. Monday through Friday; and
  • 12 a.m. on Saturday to 11:59 p.m. on Sundays (No overnight parking is permitted).
