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.

    Tracking times are pretty accurate. I use this app every morning and night to track my train and bus arrival times to/from work. I am really happy there is a favorites feature so I don't have to search for my typical bus and train arrival times.

    Easy to use, comprehensive and up to date. Best way to get your CTA information on windows phone!

    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.

    I commute in Chicago with Metra and CTA. Can't live without it. Developer responds immediately.
