myTransit - CTA
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
myTransit gives you easy access to the Chicago Transit Authority’s real time tracking system (CTATracker) from any iPhone or iPod Touch with network access. With myTransit you can quickly find out when your bus will be arriving to any stop you choose.
To track a bus in real time simply touch the bus you want to see and you will see the next four stops that bus is making along with the buses progress on a map. The bus's movement will automatically refresh every 60 seconds.
• For any bus stop see what buses will be arriving
• Track the bus in real time on a built in map
• Lookup any stop by route
• Mark any bus stop as a “favorite” allowing you to quickly access
• Search through all CTA bus stops by word, letter or number
• Map the stops closest to you and scroll/zoom the map to find more stops
• See the map location of any bus stop

What's New in Version 3.7
Fixed problem with nearby stops map
What a joke
Even though gps technology has been around for a decade and anyone with the cheapest phone can get accurate timely directions, the creators of this app have not yet been able come close to figuring out the technology needed to know where a bus is actually located. If the app says the bus is coming in any less time than 5 minutes then u have a great chance of already having missed the bus and can look forward to standing in the cold for 15 mins till the next one. I have to give myself at least a 10 min window to walk one city block to barely catch the bus. If you need to depend on an app because you may need to get somewhere on time like the rest of us, try another app. This one will make you just want to break your phone.
Adding favorite stop breaks app
I generally like this app, EXCEPT, recently, when you try to add a stop to your favorites, a small transparent window appears and locks the screen. Even logging out doesn't fix it, you have to restart your phone to make it go away! Fix this bug, and I can give the app a higher rating.
used to be accurate
I've used this app for years and it used to be great. Lately, though, it has caused me to be late to appointments because the bus arrival times were inaccurate. I just spent 20 min in the cold waiting for a bus that was just 1 minute away. Must've been invisible, I guess. I had been willing to overlook the fact that the app is cluttered with routes the CTA cut years ago, but it is now time to move on. Hey, myTransit, I'm only 1 minute away.
