    This app does a pretty good job. I check it when i'm leaving my apartment so i can make an informed decision on how i'm getting to work in the morning. My only gripe is that it sometimes misses buses. For example, the app tells me a bus is 10 mins. out do i start walking to catch a different bus to a different train. All of a sudden, a minute or two into my 3 block walk to option B, a bus passes me by. Why wasn't this one tracking? Did the gps on the bus not work? This isn't the norm at all, but still frustrating. Also, a few times, buses have gone from 4 mins. away to nonexistent. TLDR: app works well, but can be buggy when it comes to buses. Over all, good for commuting but still leave yourself some time

    This app is decent. It does the job. But the UI and functionality could be better. Honestly, Buster was the best CTA app ever designed and the creators stopped updating and supporting it, so it isn’t a 64-bit app, so with iOS 11 o was forced to find something else, to my chagrin. The designers of this app should steal the interface ideas of Buster, since clearly it is no longer a functional app.

    Giving you 2 stars because I've had it be correct once or twice. Locations certainly aren't provided via GPS because I've been waiting for buses for 30 mins that have said 6 mins > approaching > bus never shows. Rinse and repeat. This has been happening for months and there is no way this happens due to crappy traffic. Get it together CTA!!!

    The app was my good assistant in my trip to Chicago when I was using public transport. The only thing is that internet connection is needed.The app was my good assistant in my trip to Chicago when I was using public transport.
