Great app. One comment 4/5
Love the new look. I use this app every day. When selecting a station on a different route from the two currently selected, just clear out the second selection (maybe replace with a placeholder) and don't show any results. Showing a user-blocking error AND showing all routes from the new station (so confusing) is the worst option.
Spams my phone over and over again with messages that are old and don't even fall with in my notification window. Like 25+ messages in 2 hours about a train I don't care about. Support provides ineffective solutions. Deleted the app.
Love it! 5/5
OK ... what's your alternatives?
Didn't work 1/5
Did not have schedule, so it said. Really you don't have BNSF into Union Station?
Frequent errors 2/5
By Reddy Kilowatt
Every 2-3 times that I open the app, I get an error saying that there is no connection between the stops that I commute 40x/month.
Bad app 1/5
Wife left me as soon as I downloaded app. Would not recommend.
Easy to use! 5/5
Simple purpose, focused on that purpose, does the job great!
Works well 5/5
It shows me train times easily, including returns. Can't ask for more. Thanks for the free app!
Really good 5/5
More features would be cool, but that's just icing on top.
Great app 5/5

Works Great. I love it. Saves me a lot of time. Easy to use.
Definitely Best Metra Schedule - One Minor Flaw 4/5
By Matt's Mac Mini
Absolutely fantastic app, huge time saver keeps you onTime, but one issue. They need to add a designator to show which trains are express as express trains often leave from different tracks. Premium version well worth it.
Good App 5/5
Saves you time which saves us all Money. 5/5
I'm not stating that the application is perfect. The app is user friendly and quite self explanatory but the design doesn't really fit in with the Other apps in the iOS store.
Overall it does what it promises and truly gets you up to date information on lines.
THE REST IS UP TO YOU. SO STOP READING THIS AND CATCH THAT TRAIN.
By Fan of Research
App is easy to navigate but has a major information design flaw. Metra uses train numbers to identify the trains and the app only uses station times. This should be fixed asap. Passengers don't know what train the app is referring to during service disruption. Which happens often and is most critical at that point.
Love It! 5/5
App is extremely useful and accurate. I just dislike that it feels like this app always asked me to download a totally different version. Why?
Great app! 4/5
Surprised on the negative reviews but it has worked for me since downloading a couple months ago. This app is great especially showing how much time remaining. Only flaw is the 12:40 am train doesn't show (since its probably next day) but otherwise perfect.
Won't load schedule 1/5
Used this app for years and In the last six months it has been terrible and stoped working
It locks up all the time and won't load the new schedule
Alerts never work so don't trust them
We need to go find a better app... still looking
I finally deleted it from my phone. I give up!
Poor operation 1/5
Schedules never load.
Deleting Favorite Pairs 2/5
By $$ rate guy
When trying to delete old favorite pairs the app barfs and closes down
No station 1/5
Nice going. I updated the app and now my station is missing. Dropping immediately
Default to OTC? 3/5
Why it's always default to OTC on one of my devices?
Crashes every time I open it and there's no update.
Great app !! 5/5
Really nice to have. Easy to use.
Excellent App 4/5
Gives you an accurate time of when the trains arrive. I take the train into the city everyday for work and I rely heavily on this app and it has not once let me down. If only it gave you an update for any train delays then I could give it 5 stars.
Never works correctly 1/5
Every time I try to use the app it replaces my destination station to OTC and then it takes a long time to get it reset.
Nice App 4/5
I love this app! It's a life saver and it does what I need it to do.
Best Metra app o iOS 4/5
This is the best metra Chicago app I have been able to find on iOS
What happened 1/5
This was an excellent app but now it doesn't seem to be working. :-(
Doesn't work 1/5
By Star hunter 23
Constantly posts error message. It worked well before the last update.
Stopped working 2/5
By Raw mom
This app worked 3mons. Now it shows the 55-56-57 station cannot be found. I don't use it everyday as I once did but that should not be a reason not to find the station. Please fix this problem
Recent update failure 1/5
After using this the last few months, this app stopped loading. It opens. In the background it shows what I had opened the last time it correctly opened, but it crashes as soon as it opens. I bought the pay version thinking that they stopped updating the free, but that has the same problem.
North shore chicago Commuter rating 3/5
By Commuter on the go
When it works it is great. When it doesn't it is useless and better to have a crumpled paper schedule.
Hard to switch preferred route if it gets set. Had to wipe out and reload to designate a different starting point.
Freezes at times. Again a great asset.
Also why say on aNew York Minute "verses "Chicago Express"!
Very useful 5/5
Very easy to use would miss my train if I didn't have this!
App stopped working 9/12/16 1/5
Please fix this app or remove it. It doesn't open nor does it work!
Doesn't Launch 1/5
By Wayne Beamer
App will not launch since the most recent update (iPhone 5s). Deleting and reinstalling app doesn't help. Was testing not done post-launch? Reverting to paper schedules.
Glad to have it! 4/5
By Daily Ride
Not sure what all the problems are that others have experienced, but I've had nothing but success with this app. I've used it for 2 years now and It's convenient, it's accurate, and it quickly provides info on my trains. Glad to get rid of the paper schedule.
The Worst! 1/5
The app is useless. It works only when it wants to. I've tried it on multiple devices with the same results. Very disappointed that Metra would put out such an inferior product.
Ruined by recent update 1/5
Perfect app until the last week or so, when it became "Error Message Central": it gives me messages that it can't post my schedule - or any other schedule for that matter. Tried deleting and reloading, which did no good. Really disappointed.
Doesn't Work Anymore 1/5
"Schedule not found" is the message I have been seeing for the past couple weeks. Please fix asap.
Station names not found 1/5
The app has stopped working in this latest version for many of the stations that have been renamed. Deleting and adding back favorite routes does not help. Hopefully the developers will notice this when their ad revenue drops off.
Doesn't Work 1/5
My app hasn't worked in at least a week. I continuously get error messages when I try to select my station. I'll be deleting soon so I don't waste space on my phone since this no longer works.
Metra customer 2/5
Great app until recently update. It does not work and unable to delete app.
A POS 1/5
I'm deleting it now. Nothing but error messages.
Not working after update 1/5
Not working after update.
This app is way better then the app I was using. Way better. Good work and thanks!
Glad the one from metra stopped working 4/5
By Martini up blue cheese olives
Because this one is better.
This app stopped working 1/5
I used this app for about 9 months then one day it just stopped working. It won't load the data and says schedule not found.
Needs to integrate delay information 3/5
This app conveniently provides train times but lacks any information on train delays. An estimated delay time window--as indicated on the station speakers--should also be integrated with the app. Delays happen often enough to warrant it.
