To show gratitude, all veterans are invited to ride the South Shore Line for free for Veterans Day on Friday, Nov. 10 and through the weekend of Nov. 11-12.

“We are honored to offer veterans and active duty military personnel (including reservists) free rides on the South Shore Line,” commented Nicole Barker, director of capital Investment and Implementation at the SSL. “By welcoming them on the train for free, we hope to convey our gratitude for all they have done for our nation. It’s our way of thanking veterans for all they’ve done to keep our country safe.”

As train personnel walk through the train, riders should let them know they are a veteran or active military personnel, and they will receive a ride at no charge. No identification will be required.

On Veterans Day (Saturday, Nov. 11), trains will follow the regular weekday train schedule.

Up to three children under 14 years of age may ride free with each veteran on off-peak weekday and all weekend trains.

The South Shore Line is a commuter rail line operated by the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District (NICTD) between Millennium Station in downtown Chicago and the South Bend International Airport in South Bend
