SSL Temporary Busing Service Advisory


South Shore News

Temporary busing to occur between Carroll Ave. and South Bend Airport stations April 23-27 and April 30-May 4, 2018. 

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

The temporary busing periods will occur at various times throughout the spring/summer, with the first of these periods being scheduled for April 23-27 and April 30-May 4, 2018.

During these times, weekday train service between Carroll Ave. and South Bend will be suspended, with buses arriving and departing with passengers to match our published Monday-Friday train schedule between Carroll Ave. and South Bend.

Please note that bus service to and from Hudson Lake will not be available during these periods. 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 Trains 422 & 424

- Eastbound Train 401

South Bend passengers 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. NOTE: No bikes will be transported via bus for Trains 6 and 11 during this time.

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

Train service between Michigan City and Chicago will operate as scheduled.
Delays may occur due to the busing. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
