"We'll jump to the point here and say that we prefer Buster's UI over CTA Tracker's, hands down."
- Ars Technica
"I just picked up Buster. This is the app I've been wanting _before_ I got my iPhone."

"Buster for the iPhone is a totally awesome app. I highly recommend it if you ride any CTA buses."

Buster is the quickest, easiest way to find out just how long it's going to take a Chicago bus to get you on your way. Using data provided by the CTA's bus tracker system over your iPhone's EDGE, 3G, or WiFi connection, or your iPod touch's WiFi, Buster lets you know just how long you'll be waiting to board. Want to grab a coffee but not sure if you'll miss your morning bus? Need to decide which routes to take? Don't want to stand in the rain or snow a minute longer than you have to? Buster can help.
It's the perfect app for summer in Chicago- whether you're hitting Pitchfork, Lollapalooza, the Taste, or any of the street fests, Buster can help you get there.
Buster is much quicker and easier than using the CTA bus tracker website--and we think it looks a little neater, too.
Buster also allows you to store your everyday routes for one-click access, and can help you find the closest stops using your device's GPS or WiFi location feature.
Buster currently works with ALL regularly scheduled bus routes.

LINCOLN BUS???? Hello?
It's been months and buster can't seem to get its head around adding the updated #11 Lincoln bus route. It come on! Also when there have been alterations in bus routes, such as for construction, they fail to update for that and their information is incorrect. Also the nearby function has never worked and always crashes the app.
Great but needs updates
Really want to keep using this but I keep getting a warning that it's losing support next os update. Also needs some retina design refreshers.
Functionally it's perfect, covers bus and train. Beautiful.
Something simple to use while on the go in the city is what is needed. I just check my favorites and it's full screen and easy to view/navigate.
