South Shore Line offering free rides to nurses and first responders in September
The South Shore Line is showing appreciation for nurses and first responders by inviting them to ride the train for free from September 11 to September 15.
All westbound weekday and weekend trains are free for first responders and nurses during these days.
“Everyone at the South Shore Line sincerely appreciates the hard work and sacrifices made by our nurses and first responders each and every day, especially during the last year and a half,” said Nicole Barker, Director of Capital Investment and Implementation at SSL. “By welcoming nurses and first responders to ride the train for free, we hope to convey our gratitude for all they have done to protect our communities.”
To get a free ride, all nurses must present ticket collectors with valid IDs, and all first responders must present ticket collectors with active-duty identification.
All active-duty police officers, firefighters, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, and dispatchers are invited to take advantage of this opportunity.
The South Shore Line is also offering free eastbound weekday rides to all passengers from September 1 through October 31.
Riders will need to purchase tickets for eastbound trips on the weekend.
