- Updated Schedules
- Bug Fixes
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.
Finally updated timetable
I love this app. Glad they finally updated the timetables.
Ignore one star reviews that think this should tell when the train actually comes - that's not what it does! It only tells the schedule.
It does have favorite stations so keep looking for the star...
It was my first time commuting to the city via train for work. This worked well for 2 days until I got onto the Harvard 641 train @ 5:16pm leaving OTC that does not "Arrive at..." my stop; even though the app said it would. Now I'm on it and have 30 extra minutes to write this review.
Luckily a gent on the train showed me the right way and apparently Metra is coming out with their own app (hopefully more accurate).
Hope this helps.
