As a sign of gratitude, all veterans are invited to ride the South Shore Line for free through the weekend of Nov. 9-11 and on Veterans Day, observed Nov. 12.

“We are honored to serve those who have served our country by offering veterans and active duty military personnel (including reservists) free rides on the South Shore Line in celebration of Veterans Day,” commented Nicole Barker, director of capital investment and implementation at the SSL. “We hope this conveys our gratitude for all they have done for our nation. It’s our way of thanking veterans for keeping our country safe.”

As train personnel walk through the train, qualifying individuals should let them know their military status, and the SSL will provide a ride at no charge. No identification will be required.

On Veterans Day, Monday, Nov. 12, trains will follow the regular weekday train schedule.

Up to three children 13 years of age and under 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.
