I agree with the other posters that even given the added walking distance the Metra commute would be preferable to the L. It is more pleasant and upscale since they charge you by distance rather than simple access.

I found that when I moved out of the city to Naperville, my commute was shortened by 20 minutes. Plus, it was much more pleasant. I lived on Lawrence/Broadway and took the red line. The only issue is that during non rush hour times, it is a long ride back home.
