The South Shore commuter rail line in northwestern Indiana is adding two trains to its weekday schedule to ease overcrowding and delays to and from Chicago.

The two new trains will be a westbound train departing Michigan City for Chicago at 8:16 a.m. and an eastbound train departing Chicago at 4:02 p.m. and ending its route in Gary.

Officials told the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District on Friday that the new weekday schedule will start mid-May at the earliest.

The rail line also plans to have the first four of 14 new double-decker cars start carrying passengers on Monday. The new $3.6 million cars will replace older, single-level cars.
