PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Port Authority of Allegheny County buses have gotten decked out for the holidays in the past, but for the first time, T riders will be able to hop on board the “Holiday Express.”

Santa, Mrs. Claus and an elf will be on board the decorated T car as it makes its maiden voyage Friday for Light Up Night.

The Port Authority posted photos of the T car on their Twitter account, saying, “We know riding the light rail system was a bit of a hassle this year — what with flooding and a freight train falling on Station Square.”

The “Holiday Express” is decorated both inside, with colorful lights and decorations, and outside, with a wreath on the front of the car and the words “Holiday Express” in the windows.
