Embark CTA – Train – Chicago L

By Embark, Inc.

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Embark CTA is an application for the CTA 'L' train system in Chicago. It is essential to all 'L' riders — from the occasional to the daily, the tourist to the commuter.

It even works without cellular signal!

It includes:
- A trip planner (no internet required)
- Station information
- Scheduled arrivals
- A handsome multi-touch 'L' system map
- Service advisories


Feedback is greatly appreciated at

Note: Embark CTA is not funded by or directly affiliated with the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA). These applications were made by two public transit riders who wanted to make the 'L' easier to use for all riders.

Only L and fixed schedules?

Dumb, why would it not have busses. And it had to download schedule updates... Although cta is never on time so good luck working on a fixed schedule app

Must-Have for ALL Commuters

Both the embark CTA and Metra apps are absolutely amazing.. This is a must have app for any commuter whether Chicago native or tourist..... The schedules are accurate and real time and alerts are almost instant for delays

Trip planner does not work.

Thanks for the consistency, embark.
