Despite being part of the Urban Grid of Chicago there is very limited local bus service in this area I cant take a CTA bus to the Hammond Library...How long has this area been without transit bus service?

The Hammond library is about a block from the nearest bus route. Hammond's own bus service shut down in 2012 but Gary Public Transportation Corp runs a loop in Hammond and Munster. Pace runs a bus to the state line and you could take the GPTC bus the rest of the way ... or walk a few blocks.

I didn't realize Hammond's library was such a draw.
