1940 Bus Schedule

The Hobart Gazette of January 11, 1940, carried this advertisement of the bus service between Ainsworth and Gary or Merrillville:

3-5-2010 1940 Bus Schedule

I wonder why there was such great demand for transportation between Ainsworth and Merrillville at 1:25 a.m.?

I have no more information at the moment. I don't know if this schedule represents just a revision to an existing service, or an entirely new service. I don't know when the buses stopped running forever.
