In Michigan City, a new opportunity soon to get a ride to the airport. Express Air Coach (EAC) announced Thursday it will begin offering shuttle service from Michigan City to O’Hare beginning May 27th. The Lafayette-based company currently offers daily service to O’Hare from Hammond and Portage and has been providing shuttle service to O’Hare from Purdue West Lafayette for 17 years. Express Air Coach President Paul Davis said the Michigan City location extends their recent additions into Northwest Indiana and is a great fit to their operational footprint. The pick-up point in Michigan City will be at the LaPorte County Convention and Visitors Bureau on South Franklin Street.
According to Davis, EAC plans on “initially offering a modest schedule to determine market demand and the interest in the service. As demand grows, we will expand our schedule accordingly and explore Midway airport as well. The Michigan City area is a great location to launch future service offerings as well. We feel this will be a great option for travelers in Northwest Indiana to get to O’Hare in a convenient, quick, affordable, and direct manner without having to deal with airport parking and transfers.” Reservations will be required for confirmed travel and can be made and paid for in advance on the company website, which is expressaircoach.com .
