South Shore Line will be offering 10% discounts on monthly passes during the month of March.
During the February 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. Therefore, as a way to say thank you, South Shore Line is offering a 10% discount on monthly pass purchases for the month of March. Discount pricing will automatically be applied at the time the March pass is purchased. If you obtain your monthly pass through WageWorks, WiredCommute, or RTA, the South Shore is working with these vendors to make sure your discount is applied.
