Its way off          Needs update on purple line schedule
One day it works fine The next day you get a blank screen          Fickle
Almost always accurate easy interface Have had a couple issues where a bus is supposedly coming in 20 minutes but it arrives sooner etc but that happens on the CTA site as well This app allows you to bookmark and have quick access                Not terrible
Re Transit Stop TS Chicago CTA Tracker Thanx so very much 4 the updates upgrades making more better improvements Please always keep continuing 2 do your best in updating upgrading A job welldone Again thank u much many blessings                Excellent upgrades and updates
Not the best Does not show when there are train service alerts       Okay
The train times are always so messed up       Ugh this is the worst
On the map view every bus and every train is approaching no matter how far theyre away Bus times can be up to 58 minutes off which is a considerably long period of time Performance is also buggy             Horrendous
Ive used this app for over a year and it works great for me                Confused by awful reviews
Not sure why this works so well for me and not for others Use it to avoid a long am wait on Belmont red line stop and pm at StateLake brown line Right within a minute almost every time Great                Works great for me
In Chicagos weather having reliable tracker is a must This one left me standing in the cold       Not on time
This is the worst cta app yet The interface is terrible Guys simpler is better and this is not simple at all Some buttons dont even do anything when you press them Download something else    Unreliable do not trust
Use the app every day Only 2 complaints are 1 UX is pretty confusing and not natural 2 always seems to go into landscape mode and is hard to get out of it Just remove landscape mode support no one uses          Not bad
This app is very unreliable It often gives the wrong time and distance for the next bus or train Ive stood at the bus stop for twenty minutes before waiting on a bus that was supposedly 3 minutes away and 32 miles away Time I could have spent inside and not in the cold The times are NOT accurate    Unreliable
Only info for one stop and no ability to change o another    Too limited to be useful
I use this tracker to time my bus and train schedules It has never let me down and has been accurate every time I highly recommend it Way to go CTA                Love It
The menu system is way too complicated for something that ought to be simple Deleted in frustration       Cumbersome and Over Engineered
When waiting for a bus on my way to work sometimes scheduled buses disappear off the map list But then they show up in real life Just after I call a cab       Disappearing Buses
I cant even open the app it keeps on closing on me This happened right after I updated to 84 such bull that it doesnt function anymore    Fix this
Waiting for bus app says 1 minbus never comes Just disappears off face of earth Good times at midnight during Chicago winter Might be better to use CTA website    Busses disappear
Im not using literally as hyperbole it is ALWAYS WRONG Also the interface is not user friendly at all The whole thing is just a hot mess dont depend on it Im one missed bus away from just getting rid of it entirely    LITERALLY ALWAYS WRONG
Its usually wrong It seems like it just guesses where buses should be based on the normal schedule and not on where they actually are    Terrible
This janky app is impossible to use Anything intuitive forget it    Terrible App Navigation impossible
I love Transit StopI think its the best CTA tracker out there and Im also delighted that it comes with an Apple Watch app However the watch app wont load since I updated to 761 I get a brief spinning circle then the watch returns to the app bubble screen Ive tried uninstalling and reinstalling on the watch restarting the watch restarting the app restarting the Watch app all to no avail Please fix                Best CTA tracker IMO but 761 broke the watch app
Its a lifesaver if you can figure out how to use it Accidentally got stuck in Map view and couldnt figure out how to leave it It turns out that the button to return to List view is superimposed on the map top left corner and looks like its part of the map text On iPhone 6 some of the controls are missing Edit button so no Saved Stops for you          Confusing interface
This app used to be great on iPhone 5 but it still has no iPhone 6 support is very buggy and is tedious to use to find what stop you are at A Notification Center widget would be nice too    No iPhone 6 support
Second time I downloaded this app today NOW I remember why I deletes it in the first place this app said the bus was going to take 18 minutes to reach the bus station I was at In reality it showed up 5 mins later I could have thought 18 mins Im gonna to grab a coffee or window shop to kill that time and then miss this bus completely Ultimately I was super confuse when the bus arrived a whole 13 minutes earlier than expected Just deletes this app Good bye    Timing Issue
Off Missed the bus every time No feature to show all buses from same stop    Counterproductive
Worthless little to No help getting around at ll    Lost in Chicago
This app is slow buggy and on my iPhone 6 Plus it constantly gets stuck in landscape mode and ceases to function for several seconds I cannot stand this app I used Buster for years which is no longer available and it was great This app is terrible    Awful
Stood in the cold for 25 minutes for a bus that was 5 minutes away Late for work Thanks    Not accurate
Train tracker wont work Please fix       Wont work
Works great always accurate Just needs an update for the new green line Cermak stop             Needs an update
I was a ux designer And Ive dealt with complicated apps From the end users point of view this app needs to be improved for better usage Im not content with this app       Worst user interface
I like some of this app but am I the only person who does not have the ability to track the grand or Chicago bus 66 and 65       Bus lines missing
Highly unreliable and inconsistent The arrival time for the Purple Line express jumps up at least 6 minutes every morning for no apparent reason For anyone who does not live right next to the station you will have to sprint every morning or miss your train Do not download it will make your commute more stressful and frustrating    Unreliable and inconsistent
App is an absolute lifesaver although this version excludes the 147 and 151 northbound buses from the Washington and Wabash stop which I use daily A fix would be greatly appreciated             Specific bug in this version
Hate it    Terrible interface deletedeletedelete
Terrible with buses absolutely no accuracy Track the freakin locations of the bus then give me an estimate    Awful
It told me arrival time And I go outside to walk to my destination and there was a bus coming    Horrible timing
Lets see Your app shows the train Im waiting for as arriving in one minute for twenty minutes Pathetic and not helpful at all    Train schedule accuracy
Ive been using this app for a number of years and have other transit apps as well I always come back to this one as its consistently the best one Ive foundOne feature I like is the view other times which gives you an idea of how long youll have to wait in the event that you miss the current busIf you allow for missed lights passengers who are elderly or disabled getting on and off the bus at stops before yours youll find that this app is pretty accurate I wont sprint from home without it                I wouldnt sprint every morning without this
This app is not accurate in regard to the bus schedule I was waiting for the 20 bus to come by at its normal time 545 but the app showed the earliest time was 600 am The 20 bus just drove by my house at 546 so once again the app wasnt accurate This happens a lot       Issue
Ive missed multiple buses days in a row using this The bus is a full 4 minutes earlier than this app Next    Awful timing Wrong 710 times
App is amazing Transferring from train to bus 2 blocks away I saw I only had 2 minutes Caught the bus by running and saved a 30 minute wait                Know when to run
This app is usually very useful and is accurate within a minute However I found a route 6 which it was off by 5 minutes according to the bus stop status and the CTA website Please fix your source of information          Good appmost of the time
I missed two trains because it was 2 minutes off       This app has a time lag
Great app for getting around                Nice
Ive Had This App Since I Got My First iPhone Ive Never Had Any Major Problems Unlike Some If The Reviews I Read The Reason Im Not Giving It The Full 5 Stars Is Because Every Once In A While Not Too Often Ill Look Up The Time For A Bus It Will Show The Next Up Comming Bus But When I Refresh The App The Time Will Disappear             Not That Bad
The app crashes every time I try to open it on 5c    Crash
The first time that I downloaded this app was a good experience And the app worked out very nicely and I had no glitches                Very useful
