South Shore Line’s Bikes on Trains program resumes


It’s that time of year again when riding a bike to work is made possible with the South Shore Line’s Bikes on Trains program.

The program is offered on two morning and two evening rush-hour weekday trains in addition to select weekend trains.

Bike cars are bike rack-equipped in addition to regular seating so that passengers can ride in the car near their bicycles.

Bike icons can be found on the SSL timetable next to specific train times that run equipped with bike-racks.

Bike-rack equipped train cars are also clearly marked with a bike symbol prominently located on the windows of the car. Bikes are not permitted during special Chicago events such as Lollapalooza and the Chicago Air & Water Show.
