South Shore Line offers friends ride free weekend to commuters

SouthShoreNICTD South Shore Line (SSL) recognizes the continued loyalty of monthly ticket holders and wants to express their gratitude by offering a promotion for monthly ticket holders in early May.

Saturday, May 4 through Sunday, May 5, the SSL is offering a “friends ride free” weekend to monthly commuters, inviting one friend to ride free with a commuter who holds a monthly pass. No ticket is required for the friend.

“We are continuously exploring options to better serve our loyal riders, and our monthly ticket holders in particular, to show our appreciation,” said Nicole Barker, Director of Capital Investment and Implementation. “We also enjoy seeing new faces riding the South Shore Line. We hope our monthly ticket holders take advantage of this opportunity to go to Chicago with a friend for the day and enjoy springtime in the city.”

The SSL offers other commuter perks, including transit benefit programs, discounts for monthly passes, quiet cars on every rush hour train and onboard Wi-Fi.
