Temporary busing to occur between Carroll Ave. and South Bend stations

MICHIGAN CITY — The South Shore Line plans to periodically bus weekday (Monday-Friday) passengers between Carroll Avenue and the South Bend Airport while they upgrade the 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 next of these periods being scheduled for May 21 through 25.

During this time, weekday train service between Carroll Avenue and South Bend will be suspended, with buses arriving and departing with passengers to match the published Monday through Friday train schedule between Carroll Avenue and South Bend.

Bus service to and from Hudson Lake will not be available during this time. Hudson Lake passengers are encouraged to board at the Carroll Avenue station.

Additionally, the following trains operating exclusively between South Bend and Michigan City are canceled during busing:

• Westbound Trains 422 & 424 

• Eastbound Train 401

South Bend passengers will board buses located just north of the train platform at the South Bend International Airport. Passengers will disembark the bus at Carroll Avenue and board their normally scheduled trains for the balance of their westbound trips. No bikes will be transported via bus for Trains 6 and 11 during this time.

Eastbound South Bend passengers will disembark their trains at Carroll Avenue and board a bus for the remainder of their trip to South Bend.

Train service between Michigan City and Chicago will operate as scheduled.

Delays may occur due to the busing.
