To show their gratitude, all active-duty military personnel and veterans are invited to ride the South Shore Line for free November 10-13, 2023, on all weekday and weekend trains.
“We hope that this celebration of active-duty military personnel and veterans (including reservists) with free rides can show the immense gratitude we have for their service,” commented Nicole Barker, Director of Capital Investment and Implementation at the SSL.
“As train personnel walk through the train, please let them know that you are active military personnel or a veteran, and we will provide you a ride at no charge,” the SSL said.
No identification will be required.
Up to three children 13 years of age and under may ride free with each military personnel/veteran on off-peak weekday and all weekend trains (off-peak weekday trains arrive at Millennium Station after 9:30 am CST and depart Millennium Station before 3:30 pm and after 6:30 pm CST).

Throughout the year, the SSL offers various campaigns and opportunities for free rides. You can also take advantage of our Kids Ride Free program, allowing up to three children 13 years of age and under to ride free with each paying parent or guardian on off-peak weekday and all weekend trains.
As a reminder, in order to accommodate construction for the Double Track NWI project, long-term busing is in effect for passengers between Gary Metro and Dune Park stations. Train service between Gary Metro and Millennium and between Dune Park and South Bend Airport will operate as normal.
