South Shore Ends Mask Optional Car

The mask optional passenger car on the South Shore Line commuter trains has been discontinued in the wake of an executive order issued last week by Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb that mandates the wearing of facial masks in an effort to restrain the state’s surge of COVID-19 cases.

The South Shore will now required all passengers to wear facial masks while aboard trains.

The railroad had created the mask optional car earlier this year, saying at the time that it was difficult to enforce a mandatory mask rule.
