The train station in Libertyville falls far below standards compared to other neighboring communities. Most Monday mornings, the inside station has garbage cans overflowing and the floor is filthy. This place needs an update badly! With the amount of voters that ride this train, I would think our politicians would want this to look better!

Just moved to the south side of town this year, and use Metra a few weeks a month to commute into Chicago. I wish Libertyville's main station would allocate more daily parking options that don't require a "mile's walk away" from overflow lots...and replace the archaic cash box with an electronic parking machine. I end up driving down to Lake Forest given reliability of their parking, as well as spend additional money with their businesses nearby. I'm sure others are in the same boat! Wouldn't it be nice to see our money stay local?

I do agree the station could use an update, but as for parking, where do you propose that they put this? On the property of the homeowners around the lot? I know you used quotes to indicate an exaggeration but the walk from Butler to the station is .5-.6 miles. I can imagine it is an inconvenience sometimes but you would rather drive almost 20 minutes extra than take a ten minute walk? And you mention businesses as though the Libertyville train station isn't 1 block from downtown. I know every situation can be unique but I live very near the station and really don't want to see my neighborhood turn into commuter parking. Perhaps the deck could utilized instead.
