hello

first post so go easy on me please...

we are considering moving to bolingbrook (from Dallas, TX), but there seems to be no close metra station. closest one is Lisle (about +/- 7mi), via rte 53.
I found one post not recommending this due to parking, but wife drop off is an option for me.

is there anyone making this daily drive from bolingbrook to lisle station?
how is the traffic like?
does taking 355 help?
how is parking in Lisle?

i am/will work in downtown Chicago, thus metra is a must for me

i did not want to make rash judgments based on a single negative post, so any info is appreciated

thanks in advance

downers grove or lisle would offer comparable housing-- watch out for special assessments and taxes in Bolingbrook and closer commute

I used to make this commute on a daily basis for about 5 years. It wasn't that bad. I lived near Rt 53 and Boughton...so all I had to do was take 53 all the way to Lisle Metra station. It takes 15 or 20 minutes to get down there and traffic is usually not bad cuz 53 moves fairly well. The train ride downtown is about 25-30 minutes. If you are doing the morning rush hour the trains run pretty regular until abt 8:30. Once you get a schedule down pat you will be ok. You can relax and read on the way downtown...not a bad ride...as opposed to driving yourself. It would be about the same time but less stress.
