South Shore to offer March discounts to monthly pass holders

South Shore Line will be offering 10-percent discounts on monthly passes during the month of March.

During the polar vortex, South Shore Line services were suspended for several days due to the extreme temperatures. Crews ran tests throughout the day and night during this time to determine whether rail lines were safe.

Unfortunately, the record-breaking temperatures caused problems ranging from downed electrical lines on South Shore Line’s tracks to damage on Metra Electric District tracks that the SSL runs on in Illinois, resulting in cancelled service on both train lines. Metra and South Shore Line crews worked around the clock to fix the issues in an expedited fashion.

South Shore Line recognizes the strain and inconvenience that suspended services have on commuters and  is offering a 10-percent discount on monthly pass purchases for the month of March. Discount pricing will automatically be applied at the time the March pass is purchased.

“Our monthly passengers responded to our suspension with such patience and understanding. We wanted to do something to let them know how much we appreciate them during this difficult time and every day. This is just our way of saying, ’Thank you for being such a loyal rider.’” said Michael Noland, South Shore Line president.

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
