Updated schedules for all agencies, but had to remove Pace due to numerous issues from their data feed being incorrect and unusable. Hopefully will return Pace support in the future they have been unwilling to correct the issues I've been asking them to fix for some unknown reason.

    Since this app was updated and then Pace bus section was taking out. This app is PERFECT. Times are accurate. If you can find a station there is GPS. Which I used recently. If you don't own a car like myself and rely on public transportation this app will meet all your needs. And it would only get better if they could add Pace but even without. Recommended this app to anyone!!

    Very helpful app and works great! Please make this app for the Android. It is worth paying for it.

    It seems like it will be fairly spot on, but I haven't had the chance to put the information into effect yet.

    Great app. Reserving one star in case app gets even better with innovation. 3 cheers for CTA/RTA. I'm glad I can say this.

    Transit Chicago just helped me catch my bus home after a long trip by mere seconds. Arrival times are spot on. I'd give it 10 stars if I could.

    What happened to PACE? They used to have those routes and schedules too. Now I can't find them...otherwise a fabulous app, given that I use CTA buses and trains and metra and PACE to get around Chicagoland for work
