South Shore News

To show our gratitude, all active-duty military personnel and veterans are invited to ride the South Shore Line for free November 11-14, 2022.

“By offering active-duty military personnel and veterans (including reservists) free rides in celebration of Veterans Day, we hope they feel our gratitude for their service,” commented Nicole Barker, Director of Capital Investment and Implementation at the SSL.

As our train personnel walk through the train, please let them know that you are active military personnel or a veteran, and we will provide you a ride at no charge. No identification will be required. On Veterans Day, Friday, November 11, trains will follow the regular weekday train schedule.

Up to three children 13 years of age and under may ride free with each military personnel/veteran on off-peak weekday and all weekend trains (off-peak weekday trains arrive at Millennium Station after 9:30 am CST and depart Millennium Station before 3:30 pm and after 6:30 pm CST).

For more information on train schedules, discounts, and to plan a trip, please visit mysouthshoreline.com or download the SSL app (available for iPhone and Android).

Throughout the year, the SSL offers various campaigns and opportunities for free rides. You can also take advantage of our Kids Ride Free program, allowing up to three children 13 years of age and under to ride free with each paying parent or guardian on off-peak weekday and all weekend trains.

As a reminder, in order to accommodate construction for the Double Track NWI project, long-term busing is in effect for passengers between Gary Metro and Carroll Ave. stations. Train service between Gary Metro and Millennium and between Carroll Ave. and South Bend Airport will operate as normal. For more information, click here
