South Shore Line adds extra trains for Lollapalooza

South Shore Line adds extra trains for Lollapalooza

A mural celebrating the South Shore Line to Chicago is shown in downtown Highland.

The South Shore Line will run more westbound and eastbound trains this weekend for the popular Lollapalooza music festival in downtown Chicago.

The commuter rail line that runs between Millennium Park and South Bend expects the usual increase in passengers for the four-day festival that draws around 100,000 people to Grant Park. This year's Lollapoalooza headliners include Post Malone, Foo Fighters, Tyler, the Creator and Miley Cyrus.

This weekend, the South Shore Line is adding westbound train 606 that will depart Carroll Ave at 9:27 a.m. and train 506 will leave South Bend at 1:05 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

An extra eastbound train will leave Millennium Station at 6 p.m. Saturday, run non-stop to Hegewisch and then make all local stops at Carroll Avenue in Michigan City. Another extra eastbound train will leave Millennium Station at 10:50 p.m. Saturday, run non-stop to Hegewisch and then make all local stops at Carroll Avenue in Michigan City.

Neither will serve Hudson Lake or South Bend.

Go on patrol with Aaron Crawford, a Cpl. with the Lowell Police Department, as he speaks about joining the force, DUI enforcement grants, and police Jiu-jitsu training.

The South Shore Line continues to require masks in both Indiana and Illinois regardless of vaccination status, per federal mandate. Only children under 2 and passengers with health issues are exempt.

Anyone not complying with the mask mandate will be removed from the train.

Alcohol will be prohibited this weekend and glass bottles are always banned regardless of the contents.
