Chicago L Subway Map is only app you need to ride the 'L'. With offline CTA (Chicago Transit Authority) and Chicago Metra maps to save data and live line updates, the CTA map is fast so you can ride the L without delays.

Apart from the main Chicago CTA map there's also a detailed Downtown Chicago map, an RTA Regional System Map (CTA, Metra, and Pace) so you can view the best connections to make as well as a point to journey planner that will tell you the fastest routes and lowest cost of getting from A to B by train, bus, car, taxi, bike and foot. Not just in Chicago, but from anywhere in the world to anywhere else!

You can even see if the lines are running or disrupted without opening the app by adding the widget to your lockscreen and get notifications by hitting the star for your most used lines.

If you're living, working or just visiting Chicago Illinois, then get this free app on your device now, and don't wait for that moment that when you wished you had it now!

** For those of you that travel a little further we've also added access to all our other market leading subway maps such as New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Montreal, London, Paris, Moscow, Madrid, Amsterdam, Brussels, Rio de Janiero, Sao Paulo, Barcelona, Valencia, Granada, Hong Kong and Tokyo.

What's New

Version 1.1.2

Now with LIVE line statuses so you know which lines are running and which aren't, get notifications for the lines you use most when the service is disrupted or view them from the widget without even opening the app.
(We made our app for The 'L' smaller and faster too!)

Poor UI and little actual information

Maybe I was expecting a different app. No trip planning. No way to back out of child screens. Non-conforming UI with klunky design and poor navigation. Oy.

Developer Response

For trip planning hit the link that says 'Journey Planner' in the More Index.
To back to the main screens, hit the back arrow at the top left of the screen (or More Maps to return to a map of choice).


No interactive options

This CTA app is terribly basic. Google maps works better.

Developer Response

We've made simple on purpose. The maps are simple and offline (load quickly, no waiting for internet and using up data). This is a concern we address for people in a hurry, beneath ground or visiting from overseas.
Plus if you are connected there live updates on the service with notifications so you can be informed and a widget so you can check without even opening the app.
It's not Google Maps (we don't want to own the World and try and sell you pizza!), but it is an efficient go to app that gives you what's happening on the L with just a tap of home screen icon.
