Geneva is a Metra commuter railroad station in Geneva, Illinois served by Metra's Union Pacific/West Line. The station is 35.5 miles (57.1 km) away from Ogilvie Transportation Center.[3] In Metra's zone-based fare structure, Geneva is in zone H.

The station consists of two side platforms and a waiting room, with a ticket agent booth staffed on weekday mornings. Trains go east to Ogilvie Transportation Center in Chicago and west to Elburn, Illinois. Until the line's extension to Elburn in 2006, Geneva was the western terminus of the Union Pacific/West Line.

Until 2006 and the line's extension, half of the weekend trains started at West Chicago. Since then, all those trains were moved to Elburn, leaving all trains to serve Geneva.
