CHICAGO BUSES AND TRAINS ANNOUNCE CHRISTMAS SCHEDULE
Chicago residents can look forward to some Christmas fun on the city's public transportation network.
Chicago Transit Authority has announced its 2018 holiday train and bus schedule, which continues through the end of December.
A holiday train and a elves' workshop train will be conveying not only commuters to their destinations but also food baskets to charities throughout the city.
The Christmas train tradition started in 1992 with a simple "Season's Greetings from the CTA" sign on a train that delivered food to various charities and has now expanded to include the city's entire public transport system.
The Christmas train now has Santa on board, waving to commuters from his sleigh at the front of the train.
The elves' workshop train will be decorated with thousands of twinkling lights, and passengers will be greeted by Santa's elves, who will be distributing candy canes for "good boys and girls."
Merry Christmas, Chicago.
