CTA Holiday Train makes jubilant return next week

For the 31st time, the CTA is rolling out its vibrant holiday train and bus to rev up Christmas spirit this year.

The Allstate CTA Holiday Train begins service on Friday, Nov. 25. Santa and his elves will ride along outside the train to greet children and families. You can track the train here. Look for the candy cane icon to find the Holiday Train and when it might be getting close to your neighborhood station.

The CTA Holiday Bus will hit Chicago streets starting on Tuesday, Nov. 29. Inside the bus, visitors will find a miniature village, lights, and holiday-themed seats.
