CTA Holiday Train Brightens Commute

November 9, 2006

The festive CTA Holiday Train will make its debut Saturday, November 18 spreading holiday cheer to CTA customers.

Now in its 15th year, the six-car train is decorated with thousands of multi-colored lights and features a flat car in the middle that carries Santa and his reindeer. Car interiors are decked out with bows, garland, red and green lighting, and hand poles wrapped to look like candy canes.

Debuting on the Red and Purple Lines, the Holiday Train will travel various CTA rail lines in November and December as part of regular rail service. Normal CTA fares apply.

The train will run between approximately 1 p.m. and 9 p.m. on weekends and 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. on weekdays (schedules for each individual line will vary), and will make stops at all stations along the respective routes.
