South Shore News

To show appreciation and say thank you for their service to the community, the South Shore Line (SSL) is inviting all first responders to ride the train free of charge on Sunday, Sept. 10, through Saturday, Sept. 16, on off-peak weekday and all weekend trains. 

In order to take advantage of this promotion, all first responders must present ticket collectors with valid active-duty identification. All active-duty police officers, firefighters, paramedics, dispatchers and emergency medical technicians are welcome.

“Everyone at the South Shore Line sincerely appreciates the hard work and sacrifices made by our first responders each and every day,” commented Nicole Barker, Director of Capital Investment and Implementation at the SSL. “By welcoming first responders to ride the train for free, we hope to convey our gratitude for all they have done to protect our communities.”

Throughout the year, the SSL has welcomed various groups to take advantage of free round-trip transportation on designated days. In the near future, the train will be offering free transportation for military veterans in honor of Veterans Day. Keep up with the SSL on social media for the official announcement and details of this special promotion.

Additionally, the SSL offers reduced fares for seniors, active duty military personnel, commuting students, infants and passengers with disabilities on all trains year-round.
