iTrans Chicago CTA

By iTrans

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Never miss your train again: live CTA Train Tracker times right on your iPhone! Plus smart directions, the official system map, push alerts for service advisories, line diagrams, and street map mode. The best app for the 'L' system in Chicago.

• Tap any station to see LIVE Train Tracker departure times, just like the overhead displays in the station. One touch tells you if you should hurry or stop for a cup of coffee on your way home.
• Get step-by-step directions between any two places. iTrans even figures out the best station to walk to and gives you walking directions.
• Browse through train schedules for any station. Great for finding that last train on a Saturday night!
• Get push alerts for service disruptions, customized to your line and your commute time. Plus service advisories are saved for offline browsing, so you can browse them when you don't have service.
• Page through the official CTA 'L' system map in beautiful high resolution.
• Street map mode shows you lines and station locations on a street map, along with every entrance and exit to station complexes. Never wander around looking for the stairway again.

This app is for the Chicago CTA 'L' system. Bus info is not included (yet). Official system map used under license from CTA.

Customer Reviews

Great app (when it works) -- useful and mostly accurate

Lists all the CTA stops. Just click the one you want on the map and it displays both scheduled and live times. I use it literally every work day. Only downside is it occasionally goes offline for a day or so, but that's rare.

1/9/13 update: scheduled times have been unavailable for 3 days now (live timing does work). I've sent daily emails to tech support, but no reply so far.

New transit option is nice

Used to be a good app to see which stop was coming up. Now that they've added the option to map your route for you, it's a GREAT app. Hasn't replaced Google Maps yet, but a nice substitute.

Worth it at any price!

Concise directions, super easy to use. Taken a few trips to Chicago now and this app has never failed, or failed to impress!! Thanks.
