The bus service is testing out the route through September 2.
The bus will depart from E Washington St between N Delaware St and N Alabama St, across from the Indygo Downtown Transit Center. The bus stop at Chicago is located at 444 Jackson Blvd between Canal St and the Chicago River.
The pilot project comes after Indiana lawmakers discontinued funding for Amtrak’s Hoosier State passenger line in the new state budget. The train service also stops in Crawfordsville, Lafayette, Rensselaer and Dyer.
OurBus Co-Founder Axel Hellman says the company plans to monitor interest before deciding whether to continue the service.
