Forgot about those increases in CTA passes for now, because it's time for the CTA Holiday Train!
The popular train decorated to the nines in holiday fare with Santa riding an open sleigh in the middle will leave from Midway on its maiden voyage at 3:07 p.m. Friday. It will pick up the Green Line route at Roosevelt and follow it to Harlem/Lake. Then it goes back into the Loop and on to Cottage Grove. Finally it heads to the Loop again and then back home to Midway for the night.
On Saturday, it's all Green Line, starting with photos with Santa. Get photos with Santa at the following stations, at the following times:
- Harlem/Lake: 1:15pm – 2pm
- Ashland/63rd: 3:15pm – 4pm
- Cottage Grove: 4:45pm – 5:15pm
Have a great time, and send us some photos!
