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.

    Very decent app. The time may be off by several minutes, but when taking public transit, you should already plan on getting to your destination early. I live a block away from the train but still leave 10 minutes before because this is the CTA were talking about. Also the app sometimes states a 10 minute ETA , and as I begin walking towards the station, a quick glance at the app shows the ETA to be only 2-3 minutes and I either have to run or wait for the next train. I say this app has about an 80-85% accuracy for any transit I take. IMO

    I love this app and use it pretty much every day. I only wish they still included PACE buses.

    An extremely handy app for any public transit user in Chicago. The UI is very accessible, the variety of routes and options are both robust and easy to compare. This is a very worthwhile download.

    Purchased it, and it doesn't show Pace bus schedules like in the screenshots :\ flawed!

    Works great. It would be helpful if you added a quick link to your favorites, save a few clicks when looking them up.

    Accurate and never glitchy! Wish I could plan a trip, though.
  • by Mark 3/25/2015
    Offline meta schedules are awesome. Offline train and bus would be great too.
  • by Luis 3/24/2015
    Really cool app and pretty accurate. Would be great if it showed reroutes for maintenance on the L or bus routes.

    Good app, works really well and aside from a few small annoyances. It's well worth the dollar! Subtracting a 🌟 for asking me to rate it again. Subtracting a 🌟 for asking me to rate it again.
