Next Transit provides quick and easy access to estimated train and bus arrivals times for Chicago's CTA trains.

Next Transit uses your location to show the estimated arrivals for the closest train stations. You can also manually select the bus or train stop you're interested in, or setup a list of your favorite stops.

Next Transit requires a data connection to download the arrivals predictions, and location services enabled to display nearby 'L' stops.

Ratings and Reviews

Very useful and accurate


I find this to be very useful and accurate. I use it to estimate bus and L arrival times whenever I'm taking the CTA. You can save favorite stops or routes and search buses either by route or stop number. I've tested it several times from home. I can see buses from my condo window. I've put in the route and watched for the bus to pass. The times are very accurate.
It's useful if you want to know if you can make a quick stop before your bus arrives, or if, in cold or hot weather, if you should delay before going to the bus stop.

The fastest way to get the nearest train

Dr Monacle

This gets 5 stars because literally all I have to do is open it up and it will immediately find the nearest train. I've used all of the popular CTA apps and they're fine. But frankly if I have to tap a few times to sort by line or times or anything--wow you've already wasted my time.

This app gives you everything you need and nothing you don't. It's my only CTA app when I'm at or near a station, wondering how much longer until my car shows up.

A well developed app. A little suggestion.


Pro: the app allows you to store stations, while All Aboard lacks this essential function (or at least not immediately available)
I also like how the L trains are colored. And how it can automatically determine my position.

Con: I like a prettier logo than this. My suggestion will be keeping the background L train colors, but please change that clock in the middle to white fringe with black face and white needles. (Unless you have a strong symbolic reason to keep the grey face for the clock...)
