New rail, bus schedules go into effect next week

New schedules for all CTA rail lines will go into effect on Monday. And the winter bus schedule will be effective on Sunday, Dec. 19, for the routes listed on the continuation. Most of the bus routes will continue to have the same frequency and span of service, but arrival times may change up to a few minutes.

Visit the CTA website for more details.

CTA Tattler Holiday Train outing this Saturday.
And did I mention that we’re riding the CTA’s Holiday Train Saturday? If you want to meet-up with, we’re going to start at the Roosevelt station to catch the Holiday Train heading north on the Orange Line. It is scheduled to arrive at 5:55 pm. If you can’t make it to the Roosevelt station, board elsewhere on the Brown Line (it follows the Brown route when it gets to the Loop) and look for us on the first car of the train.

We’ll start the evening’s festivities with food and drink at 4:30 pm at the Wabash Tap, 1233 S. Wabash. And we’ll head to another local watering hole at the north end of the Brown Line when the ride is over. Here’s the detailed schedule.

If you can’t join us Saturday, look for photos here next week.
