The South Shore Line plans to periodically bus passengers between Carroll Ave. and the South Bend International Airport while we upgrade our track and segments of overhead wire between Michigan City and South Bend.
The temporary busing periods will occur at various times throughout the spring/summer, with the first of these periods being scheduled for Monday, May 4 through Friday, May 8, 2020.
During this time, train service between Carroll Ave. and South Bend will be canceled, with buses arriving and departing with passengers to match our modified weekday train schedule between Carroll Ave. and South Bend, located here.
Busing availability at the South Bend Airport will be limited, therefore westbound passengers are encouraged to board at Carroll Ave. Station or other western stations.
Please note that bus service to and from Hudson Lake Station will not be available during this time. Hudson Lake passengers are encouraged to board at the Carroll Ave. Station.
Additionally, eastbound Train 701 and Train 703 operating exclusively between Michigan City and South Bend are canceled during busing.
Westbound passengers departing from South Bend will board buses located just north of the train platform at the South Bend International Airport. Passengers will disembark the bus at Carroll Ave. and board their normally scheduled trains for the balance of their westbound trips.
Eastbound passengers destined for South Bend will disembark their trains at Carroll Ave. and board a bus for the remainder of their trips to South Bend.
Train service between Michigan City and Chicago will operate as scheduled.
