South Shore offering free westbound rides during Chicago Auto Show

Press release provided

Saturday, Feb. 9, through Monday, Feb. 18, passengers may ride free on all westbound weekend and off-peak weekday South Shore trains during the 2019 Chicago Auto Show (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). This is also the perfect opportunity to take advantage of free westbound rides for Valentine’s Day and plan a date in the city.

Nicole Barker, Director of Capital Investment & Implementation: “The winter months can drudge on and sometimes feel like there is no end in sight. We wanted to let our riders know how valuable they are and also provide them something to look forward to during this season of shorter, colder days. Hopefully everyone can take advantage of the free westbound rides while heading to the auto show, and then again for a date night in the city for Valentine’s Day.”

Keep up with the SSL on social media for special announcements. Additionally, kids 13 years of age and under ride free on off-peak weekday and all weekend trains. The SSL also offers reduced fares for seniors, military personnel, commuting students, infants, and passengers with disabilities on all trains year-round.
