Product Description

Travel smarter with the most popular and award-winning† app for trekking around Chicago public transit on the CTA.

This isn't just a bus or train tracker - this feature-packed yet easy-to-use app will revolutionize your commute and simplify your life.

THIS FREE VERSION IS AD-SUPPORTED AND HAS LIMITED OR DEMO-ONLY FEATURES.
<b>IMPORTANT: Metra, Pace, and South Shore are NOT supported in this free version because they do not provide a bus or train tracker like the CTA.

It costs me money to host, serve, maintain, and update the data for these other systems, so they must be limited to the paid version of the app.

Sorry, but thank you for understanding.</b>

† Apps4MetroChicago app contest finalist (Transportation round).

5.0 out of 5 stars always part of my trip planning August 15, 2013

This free app is very accurate; I would say 95% of the time. The few times a bus route would disappear from the tracker I think was not the tracker's fault but the CTA. You can personalize your own bus/train lists. The alerts to update are sometimes annoying but not that frequent and definitely worth a free app. I always check this app before leaving the door so I can plan my walk to the stop accordingly.
