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.

    Every time isn't noted for Pace schedules. Still pretty accurate.
  • by JaQcy 11/18/2014
    I also use Pace Bus schedules, and this app doesn't include it. That's a large flaw.
  • by Daniel 11/15/2014
    Very helpful app. I was able to plan a route with no prior knowledge of the city. I like the up to date train info too.
  • by Kathryn 11/13/2014
    Wish they had destination ETA.

    Love it, especially as a tile on my Windows phone
  • by User 11/12/2014
    Gives inaccurate times. Doesn't even display arriving busses sometimes. Need alternate app
  • by Stephen 11/12/2014
    It is everything transit in Chicago
  • by Lucky 11/11/2014
    I finally found an app that tracks Metra and Pace as well! Awesome, but I'm giving it four stars cos the Pace times are inaccurate.
