It’s the most wonderful time of the year… in fact the ONLY time of the year that people willingly hop aboard a CTA train.

Some people in Chicago love their view of the skyline. I love my partial view of the skyline and full view of the CTA train rolling by my windows from a block over. Especially around this time of year, I get soooo excited when the CTA Holiday Train goes by!! They also have the Holiday Bus and the schedule for both is below.

Here’s the schedules from the CTA’s website:
