South Shore adds trains for Blackhawks fans

CHESTERTON, Ind. – The South Shore commuter railroad plans to add extra trains for crowds heading in and out of Chicago for the parade and rally celebrating the Blackhawks winning the NHL’s Stanley Cup.

The Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District said it will add an extra westbound train Friday morning and an extra eastbound train Friday afternoon. It also is adding extra cars to its regularly scheduled trains.

District officials said that during the last Blackhawks’ celebration three years ago ridership surged from a normal 12,000 to 21,000 passengers. Because of that, officials are urging people leaving Chicago to get on board at Van Buren or Millennium Station because the Museum Campus/11th St. station is not designed to handle crowds.

Officials remind passengers that alcohol is prohibited on all trains.
