South Shore riders in Michigan City, South Bend should expect some busing service days April 23-May 4 and during summer

The South Shore Line has announced that on some days between April 23 and May 4, as well as some days this summer, passengers will be bused between South Bend and Michigan City (Carroll Avenue). Also, two trains between the two cities will not run during this period.

The temporary situation is due to overhead wire work and track work.

The busing will be “periodical” on some weekdays, the South Shore states on its website (

“The temporary busing periods will occur at various times throughout the spring/summer, with the first of these periods being scheduled for April 23-27 and April 30-May 4, 2018,” the announcement states. “During these times, weekday train service between Carroll Avenue and South Bend will be suspended, with buses arriving and departing with passengers to match our published Monday-Friday train schedule between Carroll Avenue and South Bend.

“Please note that bus service to and from Hudson Lake will not be available during these periods. 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. (NOTE: 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. Thank you for your patience and understanding.”
