Ratings and Reviews

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.

Quick and easy!


Essential app for any Chicagoan

Perfect for Chicago 'L' Info


This is one of the few apps that I keep on my main home screen on my iPhone. If you use the L in Chicago it's really a must-have. It's the absolute minimum you need to do to answer the question, when's the next train that I can catch near me. Just tapping on the app tells you the nearest station and the times of the next trains in each direction. Clear information in one tap. And you can drill in further from there to find info about any stop you like. Very well thought-out. The perfect L companion.
