Best in class
I use this app at least once a week when I invariably have to catch different trains. It's always up to date and reflects the accurate schedule... unfortunately Metra isn't always on time though.
This is a schedule app, not a real-time tracker as another commented apparently expected.
It is the best at doing what it does, no contest.
The one time this could have been extremely valuable was during the irregular operations in the cold weather. This turned out to be useless for service advisories which was the information most needed. You cannot rely on this app for anything other than basic schedule information.
Useful if you commute to Chicago
It seems useful enough. I will keep you posted if it breaks.
