The Chicago Transit Authority, the Chicago Office of Tourism and the Mayor's Office of Special Events are teaming up once again to present the sixth edition of the CTA's Haunted 'L' train this Halloween season. Ghouls and ghosts can ride the train on Thursday evenings and on Saturdays and Sundays October 9 through October 30.

The exterior of the Haunted 'L' train will be decorated to look like a haunted mansion. Once on board, guests will be entertained by ?The Hypocrites," a Chicago theatre group that will provide tales and songs of Chicago's spirit-filled history that will thrill adults and children of all ages as the Haunted 'L' makes its way around the Loop.

Trips on the Haunted 'L' are free, but guests must obtain tickets from the Chicago Cultural Center Visitor Information Center at 77 East Randolph, before boarding the trains. Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are only offered on the current day the Haunted 'L' is in operation. Ticket distribution begins at 6 p.m. on Thursdays and at 10 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

Haunted 'L' trips begin at the Randolph/Wabash 'L' station and run 25 minutes. Thursday evening trips on October 9, 16, 23 and 30 will start at7 p.m., 7:25 p.m., 7:50 p.m. and 8:15 p.m. On the weekends of October11-12, 18-19 and 25-26, trips will begin at 11:40 a.m., 12:05 p.m., 12:30 p.m., 12:55 p.m. and 1:20 p.m. Customers with disabilities can make arrangements when they pick up their tickets to board the train at the accessible Clark/Lake 'L' station.
