CHICAGO — The Chicago Transit Authority has announced the schedule for the 22nd run of the Holiday Train.

The first chance at a jolly commute comes on Black Friday, when the train will be available for Green Line passengers. The train — which features cars decked out in holiday decorations, a Santa car and holiday music — will run on the Green Line on Saturday, too.
