CHICAGO, Ill. - For the sixth consecutive year, ridership has dropped slightly for South Shore train service.

South Shore officials are blaming the drop partly on fewer riders going to festivals and other entertainment in the Windy City.

A company spokesperson says job growth has also been slow in downtown Chicago. The line says it boarded 3.6 million passengers in 2013.

They had 4.25 million riders in 2007 before the declines began.

This comes as a push is on to extend the rail line into counties north of Chicago.
