Added GPTC Hammond Bus Service Set For May 27 Start
May 21, 2014 — Local bus service is returning to Hammond the day after Memorial Day. That’s when Gary Public Transportation Corporation is scheduled to begin its new Lakeshore South route.
The new route will serve Hammond stops like Purdue University Calumet and the Walmart on 169th Street, then head south to shopping centers and medical centers in Munster and Highland.
May 27th is also the day the Tri-City Connection route will be renamed Lakeshore Connection, with big changes to its East Chicago route and stops.
Bus schedules and routes for the Lakeshore South and Lakeshore Connection are now available at the GPTC routes Web page.
