The best CTA train tracker

This is a great app. The developer's reply to my review taught me the error of my ways. Developing software takes time and this is some incredible software. It must've taken SushiGrass years to make this great app. I am also happy that the app no longer crashes for Simon. Maybe one day it will stop crashing for me. Sean.

Simple and easy access

Pulls up train info quickly in an easy to read format. Way better than CTA’s mobile web. If you turn on location, it’s even easier, it just picks the nearest stop for you.
