ChicaGo DASH

Attention All South Shore Connect and DASH Riders

On January 1, 2024, Valpo Transit stopped provided South Shore Connect service to and from Dune Park Train Station.

We will re-evaluate the service in August 2024 once NICTD's doubletrack upgrades have been completed.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this pause of service may place on your daily commute and have hopes that it may return with a more successful and efficient service later in 2024.


The ChicaGo Dash is an express commuter bus service from Downtown Valparaiso to Downtown Chicago. Utilizing 53-passenger coach buses, the DASH allows you to travel in comfort to the vast employment, shopping, and educational opportunities of Chicago without the hassles of the traditional suburban commute. Lavatories, WI-FI, free parking, and even bike racks are just some of the great features offered by the DASH. Follow the links on the sidebar for more information.

Campbell Street is now open and access from Route 30 is available! You may now access the Dash parking lot from US 30 turning on Horse Prairie and coming north on Campbell street. Thank you for your patience during the construction!


This service is brought to you by the City of Valparaiso and the Valparaiso Redevelopment Commission with financial support from the Northwest Indiana Regional Development Authority. Additional financial support comes from the Federal Transit Administration and the Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC).
