A must have for any commuter that uses Metra. I can quickly glance whether in he morning or sitting at work to see when the next train is. Then I just quickly text the train info to my ride, who also has the app, which makes for an easier commute. I have occasionally noticed errors, but for the 3 weeks I have been using it (since 1/9/18) it has been really great.

A suggestion:

I wish I was provided with track information (e.g. Track 9) for trains departing Union Station. I realize this information may not be available from Metra but my life would be so much easier. For some reason at Union, only departure time of the train is displayed by the tracks, not the train number (e.g. 2244). Therefore, train number is irrelevant when at Union because it’s not used. I still have to run to the board to check what the track number my train is on. Either that or run to every door.

Ok now, wouldn’t have paid to upgrade if it started like this


I pulled the app up this morning and over an hour worth of trains is missing from the app for my origin/destination. :/

Also, I enjoyed the ability to add which train I was on and see the stats of how often it was late. That has now been removed.

And if you want to use the app to tell others if your train looks to be running late, it is a bit annoying as it switches to be destination > origin when you get closer to that station. I understand this for using the app in the morning and taking the train again in the evening but when it is a shorter time, it would be nice if it could stay on the same route so I could keep tracking if Metra is late without having to tap to reverse the trip.

Often not correct


I started using this app in early fall 17. Times were accurate- give or take a few mins. Lately the train would be like 5-7 mins late and the app says the train is not late and has already left. This app is turning more into a schedule app for me instead of a train tracker. Too bad.
There is one app that accurately shows all metra trains and locations on a live map, but is not quite as fast to use when you are running out the door. Please fix timing issues for this app!
