Temporary busing between Carroll Ave. & South Bend July 13-24, 2020

South Shore News

The South Shore Line plans to periodically bus passengers between Carroll Ave. and the South Bend International Airport while we upgrade our track and segments of overhead wire between Michigan City and South Bend.

The next temporary busing period will occur Monday, July 13 – Friday, July 24, 2020 (this includes the weekend of July 18-19).

During this time, train service between Carroll Ave. and South Bend will be canceled, with buses arriving and departing with passengers to match our published train schedule between Carroll Ave. and South Bend.

Please note that bus service to and from Hudson Lake will not be available during this time. Hudson Lake passengers are encouraged to board at the Carroll Ave. station.

Additionally, the following trains operating exclusively between South Bend and Michigan City are canceled during busing:

  • Westbound Train 422 & Tr 424
  • Eastbound Train 401, Tr 701 & Tr 703

Westbound passengers departing from South Bend will board buses located just north of the train platform at the South Bend International Airport. Passengers will disembark the bus at Carroll Ave. and board their normally scheduled trains for the balance of their westbound trips.

Eastbound passengers destined for South Bend will disembark their trains at Carroll Ave. and board a bus for the remainder of their trips to South Bend.

NOTE: No bikes will be transported via bus between South Bend and Dune Park during this time, including the weekend of July 18-19.

Train service between Michigan City and Chicago will operate as scheduled.
