Constantly misses buses en route 2/5
The app consistently fails to alert me to buses. I look for the bus route I want and it says the next one is in 15 minutes. I know my bus runs somewhere around every 11 minutes or so. When I compare the app’s result with ctabustracker.com, the website tells me there’s a bus in two minutes and a bus in 15 minutes. I miss buses and am late to appointments when I rely on this app. I rarely do unless I know I don’t have a hard deadline for arrival. It’s clearly a problem with the app, since the website can locate all the buses just fine.
Practically the perfect public transportation app 5/5
If you’re a regular CTA passenger, there’s no reason you shouldn’t have this app!!!
Latest update is terrible 1/5
The latest update forces advertisements to take up the entire screen for 6 seconds and doesn’t allow you to see transit times. I’ve used this app for years and i am switching to another platform.
Missing one? 4/5
Missing #8 Halsted and North (red line) going south. Unless it’s under a different name, tough texting 41411 (Chicago provided service) says the name as forementioned.
Trans app 5/5
Live for this app makes me get to work on time accept when the busses are late
Would like to see pull down to refresh the arrival times vs hitting the refresh button at the top of the screen. Hard to use with one hand.
App crashes since app update 1/5
By Apple iPhone 2018
It's a great app when it works.
I have removed and reinstalled this app 4 times, restarting my iPhone with every removal.
The problems started to present after I updated the app.
Before the update, it was a great app, not anymore! It keeps crashing and the app shuts itself off.
Maybe when they've fixed this bug, I'll use it again.
App Update 2/5
Usually this app is super accurate and very helpful in allowing me to plan my departure time from home. Unfortunately after the most recent update, every time I open the app it crashes.
Not the best🤨 1/5
Not user friendly. Transit buddy was great. Times aren’t always accurate
Misses buses 2/5
Great when it works... but when you’re taking a bus to the airport for an international flight you want to work *all the time* so you don’t walk out the door expecting a bus in three minutes just to see it fly by right in front of you.
Not even close 1/5
The most counterintuitive app I’ve used. I like the screen, but getting from one screen to Another is difficult. I don’t mind the ads, it’s part of the deal, but navigating is just too difficult.
Not working? 4/5
I love this app but the past 3 mornings it has not been working. It works at night so not sure what’s up!?! Please fix - thanks!
Simple and good 5/5
Lets you know when the trains are coming, always up and on time.
App has cost me hundreds. 1/5
I have missed buses due to inaccurate estimates, and then whenever I get in a Lyft (because I can’t wait 20+ minutes in single digit weather for the next bus), I see a bus that was not in the schedule pass by.
Each Lyft ride costs me $25 at least, compared to a $2.25 bus ride. This happens almost daily.
The UI is also hideous and difficult to navigate.
Great app! 5/5
I’ve been using this for several years, it’s always come through with great information perfect timing on buses and trains. I could never get along without it. Highly recommend it. Carol Hitchie. Chicago
Use this app everyday 5/5
Bus stops 5/5
This thing is great, I am a mature woman who works retail, sometimes I get off late at night. This app allows me to be in the know about busses and trains so I don’t have to be standing alone in the street.
The bus isn’t coming on time.
New update makes app crash 1/5
The App freezes and crashes as soon as I open it, very disappointing
Timely and helpful app 5/5
Very accurate most of the time. Very helpful for navigating around Chicago via the CTA.
Bus tracker 5/5
By el papi123
App nott working rn 11/17/17 1:00pm please fix !
Never accurate! 1/5
For the most part the timing on the buses are way off. You can be standing in the rain for 8 extra minute if the bus is 1 minute away. The app is garbage.
Just missing one feature 4/5
Wish it were predictive, based on location!
Delayed times? 3/5
By I want to believe👽
Instead of just telling me when a bus is delayed, can you put approximately how much time it’s delayed, it doesn’t help if it just says delayed, how am I suppose to know how long if there isn’t a time next to it or if I just opened the app to check.
Site crashes 2/5
By Medina colts
This app is convenient but it crashes a lot. I either have delete it and get it again, or just nit use it. Also, it doesn’t track all the buses.
Still crashes 1/5
Please update again, the app won’t even open, just crashes.
This app is decent. It does the job. But the UI and functionality could be better. Honestly, Buster was the best CTA app ever designed and the creators stopped updating and supporting it, so it isn’t a 64-bit app, so with iOS 11 o was forced to find something else, to my chagrin. The designers of this app should steal the interface ideas of Buster, since clearly it is no longer a functional app.
Screamed at me 1/5
By kinda annoyed
I got my screen taken over by one of those “you are infected with a virus” messages that tries to make it so you have click “ok” to get out of it. Then my phone started screaming. Deleted the app and it hasn’t happened since.
Least user-friendly app I’ve ever used. Could not find any useful information with any ease whatsoever. Find another app.
Autoplayed ads? Seriously? 2/5
You used to be cool.
This app would be perfect if... 4/5
By El Miguelito
This app does a pretty good job. I check it when i'm leaving my apartment so i can make an informed decision on how i'm getting to work in the morning. My only gripe is that it sometimes misses buses. For example, the app tells me a bus is 10 mins. out do i start walking to catch a different bus to a different train. All of a sudden, a minute or two into my 3 block walk to option B, a bus passes me by. Why wasn't this one tracking? Did the gps on the bus not work? This isn't the norm at all, but still frustrating. Also, a few times, buses have gone from 4 mins. away to nonexistent. TLDR: app works well, but can be buggy when it comes to buses. Over all, good for commuting but still leave yourself some time
Needs Work 4/5
Great app that I’ve used for over 5 years. Just one caveat: if you’ve recently upgraded to iOS 11, you’ll probably want to hold off on downloading the app. There seems to be a critical error at the moment that is preventing the app from starting up.
Reliable and pretty accurate. 4/5
By #1 fruit ninja fan
I use this app pretty much daily and it does me right.
Transit App rating 4/5
By South African Princess
Very helpful when getting around the city in general during my commute. Really helps me gauge how much time I have, if I'll be late, etc.
I like it
Right on Time 5/5
I'm new to taking CTA and have found this app to be great for getting me to work on time.
Stopped working 1/5
Used to work now but now crashes constantly.
0 star 1/5
This app is garbage. It used to work well and lately has had incorrect times every single time I've used it in the past month. So you're either 1-3 minutes behind what it says or your bus will completely disappear off the map when it gets close.
Do not download.
Don't Count on It!!! 1/5
App says you have 3 minutes arrival time...you make it in 2....look at the app and now it says 8 minutes however the 3 minute one never came...this happens EVERYDAY!!!
Need update 1/5
Freezes upon opening, need update
Handy tool! 5/5
This is a must-have app if you're a regular rider. Lets you time your commute to avoid long waits in the rain or cold for your ride. It's very accurate.
By Greg McKee
Not accurate 1/5
This app does NOT provide accurate arrival times for the buses, in fact, it's almost ALWAYS wrong. Don't recommend.
Crashes, won't open and gets stuck on the first blue logo screen 1/5
App won't open, keeps getting stuck on the blue logo screen when starting up. Ads are intrusive and take up the whole screen. Crashes consistently.
Sits on intro screen for 30 seconds then crashes. Third time in a row!
Pop up adds make using impossible 1/5
By Treyn wreck of an app
Can't use this app long enough to get the information I need without a pop up add causing the App Store to open. Worthless and a waste of space!!!
Fast and easy 5/5
Super fast to search for the bus or train you need and see when it's coming. I like that you can save routes and then get even faster updates about the next train/bus is coming.
Can't use this without an ad popping up when I touch the screen.
Great app! 5/5
👍🏼👍🏼 few glitches here and there but overall great app
Thanks for the quick fix, mate. 5/5
This is one of my essential apps, and is hands down the best bus tracker app out there (I've tried them all). The previous version had a crash-on-startup bug on iOS 9, but the developer turned out a fix in short order and I'm a very happy Transit Stop user once again!
