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.

    Really cool app and pretty accurate. Would be great if it showed reroutes for maintenance on the L or bus routes. *Update 16-May-2015 Now shows the train reroutes. I'd like to see an update that shows the current bus locations. I believe the cta is deploying GPS units on the buses to help mitigate bus bunching. Hopefully cta can open an API into that data.

    I'm a student who commutes, and I love this app and use it literally every day. Tried a few others and this is the best WP app for Chicago transit by far. Thanks for making it great!

    Praise god, a Windows app that is actually worth something! Can't imagine trying to catch the CTA in neighborhood I don't know with out this app. It's confidence to explore. One note, the system map doesn't work quite right
