SSL expands Kids Ride Free Program to create affordable spring break play- cation


South Shore News

With spring break right around the corner, the South Shore Line (SSL) is expanding its Kids Ride Free program from March 23 – April 6, 2019.

SSL has selected this promotional time frame to cover an average portion of scheduled spring breaks across the four- county area.

The Kids Ride Free Program allows up to 3 children 13 years of age and under to ride free with a paying adult on off-peak and weekend trains. However, in an effort to help families enjoy spring break, the program will be available on all trains during the promotion.


“Spring break doesn’t have to mean traveling far from home. Our goal is to make travel more affordable and see more families taking advantage of this family-friendly offer. There are so many exciting places, events, and attractions to explore along the SSL. We hope that families create great memories right here in Northwest Indiana, Chicago and South Bend,” said Nicole Barker, Director of Capital Investment and Implementation.

This spring break promotion is part of the SSL’s ongoing efforts to provide affordable and convenient transportation to and from communities throughout North Central and Northwest Indiana and Chicago.
