Now in its 16th year, the festive CTA Holiday Train will make its first appearance Saturday, November 17 spreading holiday cheer to CTA customers.
The six-car holiday train is decorated with multi-colored lights and features a flat car in the middle that carries Santa and his reindeer. Car interiors are decked 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 along all CTA rail lines throughout November and December as part of its 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.
