To show continued appreciation and understanding of ongoing impacts from COVID-19, the South Shore Line announces that all monthly tickets purchased for the month of September will remain valid throughout October 2020.

Passengers purchasing a paper September monthly ticket should plan to keep that ticket and use it through October. Passengers purchasing a digital September monthly ticket via the mobile app will see an October ticket uploaded to their account prior to Oct. 1, 2020.

For passengers who receive tickets through an employer benefit program such as Wage Works and Commuter Benefit Solutions, these passengers should not order their October tickets if they receive a September monthly ticket.

SSL continues to require its riders to wear masks at stations and onboard train cars, practice social distancing when possible, and take advantage of sanitization stations in each car. Each train continues to offer a “mask-optional” car (second car of every train); however, St. Joseph, LaPorte, and Lake counties now require facial coverings in public areas. Therefore, passengers seated in the “mask optional” car are requested to govern their behavior consistent with the mask requirements posted by those counties.

SSL is extending free westbound rides to October 31, 2020. Now through the end of October, westbound rides are free on all trains. The free westbound rides apply to all SSL stations, and passengers can simply board applicable westbound trains with no ticket purchase.

Since May 2020, SSL has invited doctors, nurses, EMTs, paramedics, firefighters, other medical personnel, and law enforcement agents to ride free on all trains. The “healthcare workers ride free” program was extended to Aug. 31, 2020, and SSL continues to offer these other additional discounted fare programs through October. For more information, visit
