Oh, CTA, sometimes we kind of love you. Not only is there a holiday train, there's a holiday bus. Santa, the elves, and their fireplace and throne will be riding the Ralphie-the-Reindeer-adorned bus on the #22 Clark route Saturday and Sunday. Want to know where it is? Use the special Holiday Bus Tracker.
- On Saturday, it will depart the Howard Bus Terminal (next to the Red Line station, Howard & Paulina) at approximately 12:45pm and run the regular #22 route. There will be photo opportunities available at the Howard Bus Terminal between 6:30pm and 7:30pm.
- On Sunday, it will leave the Howard Bus Terminal at 11:30am and run to Old Orchard on the #97 route. There will be photos available at Old Orchard between 12:30pm and 1:30pm. It will run on the #22 route beginning at 2:30pm, leaving from the Howard Bus Terminal at that time.
