I still remember the first time that I rode to Chicago on the South Shore Railroad by myself. It was 1982, my senior year in high school, and I was going downtown to be inducted into the military at the old MEP Center on Michigan Avenue.
GARY | A failed inspection on Wednesday on the elevator and escalator that take passengers up to the South Shore platform at the Gary Metro Center station forced both to be taken out of service indefinitely, making the station inaccessible to disabled commuters.
All westbound South Shore trains are operating on schedule after early morning delays of up to 20 minutes due to red signals east of the Dune Park station, according to a statement issued by the commuter rail line.
CROWN POINT | You know the price of gas is too expensive when public officials have to park their take-home cars, city delivery drivers no longer take the scenic route before arriving at their destination and people start catching the bus.
South Shore riders should be able to connect to free Wi-Fi on trains in 2012, with the commuter railroad now wiring cars in preparation for installing the necessary hardware.
EAST CHICAGO | Some South Shore commuters at the East Chicago station complained of burning in their noses and throats Monday morning after a chemical leak at a neighboring plant.
