This App Got E'rthang Transit Tracks gives me all the info I need for every CTA stop closest to my location, for free. It helps me organize and find my saved and recent transit lines. It tells me the last time the application has been updated. And it color-codes the 'L' train schedules ... for free! LoL No, I don't work for Transit Tracker. Why would you ask?
Still my go-to transit app Still My go-to transit app for Chicago. Love the drill-down to time for future stops for a bus.
Great App. Very accurate. This is a great app if you need to know when a bus or train is coming. I use it to know when to leave my home to make it to the bus. It saves me a lot of time waiting on a bus/train. The only complaint is that sometimes you will see a phantom bus, one that is not being tracked. Happens 2-3 time a month. It not a deal breaker though because this app is great. I recommend this app to any Chicago resident needing to know when this bus or train is coming to save time and energy.
What's The Problem??? I'm not sure if your app has a bug or needs to be updated, but just recently I have not been able to follow the buses. Whenever I click on the arrow that shows once my designated route is selected, it doesn't let me see anything further. Please fix this issue and maybe I'll reinstall the app and give it a high rating again.
Unreliable and inconsistent Pretty common occurrence to have a bus listed as long shortly, then just disappear. Manageable problem for lines with frequent buses, but renders the app unusable for express routes where the time gap can approach 30 minutes
Bus arrival time off Tracker worked well for a year until recently where its bus tracking is typically off by 5 minutes. Also lags behind indicating that a bus is a few minutes away when it already passed.
