Transit Connect Schedule

The Valparaiso South Shore Connect provides six (6) routes per day, Monday through Friday. Each route departs from  260 Brown Street at the ChicaGO Dash Parking Lot and Shelter in Valparaiso, IN. 

The routes depart based on the schedule above to match the South Shore Train Arrival and Departure times (in bold above). All South Shore Connect Bus Departure times may change to match train delays. If any train inbound to Dune Park is delayed, the connect bus will wait up to 15 minutes to allow passengers on those trains to arrive.This could delay bus departures from Valparaiso by up to 15 minutes. To provide the best on-time service we can, the South Shore Connect buses will not wait for late trains longer than it will take to return to Valparaiso and back to Dune Park for the next scheduled train departure. 

If you are a passenger on a late train,  you may call Royal Excursion at (219) 476-9393 and advise dispatch you are a passenger on a delayed train and they will advise you as to the location of the South Shore Connect Bus.
