NORTHERN INDIANA COMMUTER TRANSPORTATION DISTRICT (NICTD) ADVISORY FOR FRIDAY JUNE 28 2013:
Because of the Blackhawks’ Celebration alcohol is prohibited on ALL trains.
We encourage eastbound passengers to board South Shore trains at Van Buren or Millennium Station. Museum Campus/11th St. station is not designed to handle the eastbound crowds we’re expecting.
At Van Buren Street Station South Shore passengers must board trains from TRACK 2 platform between the hours of NOON and 3:20 p.m.
We will add cars to off-peak trains and will provide an extra westbound train in Train 14’s time slot and an extra eastbound train early in the afternoon to address overcrowding. We have scheduled as much extra service as we can given our fleet size and manpower.
Passengers should expect very crowded conditions, especially on eastbound trains departing Chicago after 12:00 noon on Friday. During the Blackhawks celebration in 2010 daily ridership surged from 12,000 to 21,000 passengers. -NICTD
