South Shore News

In order to accommodate construction related to the Double Track NWI project, the South Shore Line will bus weekday passengers to stations between Carroll Ave. and Gary/Chicago Airport (Clark Rd.), effective Monday, Aug. 1 through Friday, Aug. 5. The Gary busing is in addition to ongoing busing between Carroll Ave. and Dune Park stations.  

Buses will arrive and depart with passengers to match our published train schedule between Carroll Ave. and Gary/Chicago Airport, and will make all scheduled intermediate station stops. Loop bus service continues to be provided to M. City 11th St. (bus stop located @ 920 Franklin St.) and Beverly Shores Station. Loop buses do not operate on the regular SSL train schedule. Please view the below special weekday and weekend schedules for the Beverly Shores and 11th St. loop bus. Those passengers will be bused to either Dune Park or Carroll Ave., where they may board the next scheduled SSL train.   

Westbound passengers should be prepared to board buses in front of Carroll Ave. Station and re-board WB South Shore trains at Gary/Chicago Airport. Eastbound passengers will detrain at Gary/Chicago Airport to board buses, and board their scheduled EB trains again at Carroll Ave. 

Passengers are advised that from Aug. 1-5, no bikes will be transported between the South Bend Airport and East Chicago stations. Bikes will be permitted as normal from East Chicago Station-west.
