The CTA Holiday Train 2020

 JP Paulus used to talk a lot about catching up with the CTA Holiday Train. He hasn't really shared anything about it in the last few years. However, I figure you the audience can use some holiday cheer.

With this pandemic and the challenges to the presidential election still ongoing, I think we could use it.

Of course because we're still in a pandemic we can't board the holiday train or bus as we usually would in normal times. Still I saw the holiday bus on a run one night recently and to see a vehicle decorated with Christmas lights and blaring Christmas much raised my spirits a lot!

Here is the CTA Holiday Bus & Train Schedule for 2020.

  • Green Line: November 27-28, December 1
  • Brown Line: December 2-5
  • Orange Line: December 2-5
  • Red Line: December 8, 10 and 12
  • Purple Line: December 9, 11 and 12
  • Pink Line: December 15, 16 and 19
  • Blue Line: December 17-19
  • Yellow Line: December 21
And the buses
  • December 1-2: #56 Milwaukee
  • December 3: #91 Austin/#92 Foster
  • December 4: #22 Clark
  • December 5: #22 Clark/#97 Skokie
  • December 8-9: #66 Chicago
  • December 10: #126 Jackson
  • December 11-12: #12 Roosevelt
  • December 15-16: #62 Archer
  • December 17: #49 Western/#X49 Western Express
  • December 18: #79 79th
  • December 19: #3 King Drive
  • December 22: #28 Stony Island
  • December 23: #29 State
  • December 24: #J14 Jeffery Jump
I made bold the dates where the holiday buses and trains will come through our part of the south side. So if you want the Holiday Train we'll see it on the Red Line on the 8th, 10th, and 12th...

Also great applause to CTA for their charity food delivery
The CTA family continues its decades tradition of supporting Chicago communities. Each year our employees donate their time and money to purchase groceries and assemble food baskets for delivery to community organizations across the city. This year, we'll donate approximately 600 food baskets to local community organizations.

Each food basket contains all the ingredients for a complete meal including a canned ham, potatoes, mixed vegetables, muffin mix, macaroni and cheese, fruit cocktail, green beans, corn and dessert.

Either way I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season this year.
