    This app is super awesome. It's the only app I paid for so far. Definitely worth it! Would be cool if I could change it to metric in settings (m/km instead of miles). Thanks:)

    I think this is a very helpful app even if it isn't the full version. I'd still give it a 5 star rating.. Thanks Cta !!!

    This is one of the best WP apps I have downloaded. One of the best features is the ability to select a stop, as well as the direction of travel from that stop. Reliable and quick, this app gets me through my daily Chicago commute.

    Many of the stops are missing arrival time info. But its a reasonably easy app to use and for the stops that do get info the info is clearly shown.
