Good App 5/5
The app is good for giving you the schedule. I’m looking forward to real-time updates as they would be a welcome addition.
F*uck the metra and this app 1/5
Trains late? App won’t show it. In fact I’m on a train right now that’s stuck downtown with no power, shows that it’s on time about to be at my stop. Build an app that works or find a new job.
OnTime great app 4/5
Let’s me know what’s up with trains wish it was a little up to date on the trains changing and being cancelled but I use it daily.
Love this app 5/5
By Nona Starshine
I honestly haven’t made use of any of the additional features of this app at all yet, so I can’t expertly speak on them. So far, the train info that I’ve looked up has always been accurate, is more reliable than Metra’s own website, which has several times given me incorrect info on weekends, and I love the little countdown feature. Super useful!
Metra schedule 3/5
It’s accurate all the time
App crashes 1/5
Tried to add credit card. App crashes immediately when clicking “ride”. One star until it’s fixed.
I was sitting on a stopped Metra train for 3 hours due to a accident ahead on the tracks.
Not one notice from this ap. In fact it showed my train going along as if nothing had happened. The ap has no real time data. Useless
Lags too much 1/5
Keeps on crashing
Love It! 3/5
App is extremely useful for reminding me of the Metra times; however, I just dislike that it never updates/alerts me whenever the train is running behind schedule. Hate that it doesn’t send or display alerts!!
Very helpful app 4/5
Nice to have...especially in this weather!
On Time 5/5
By Avid Chicago reader
Very helpful and easy to use. I consult this App frequently
Needs and overhaul, keeps crashing won’t let me log in,
Basically the app is good for telling you times when the trains will be there. For ex Chicago Metra pretty accurate as long as the app doesn’t crash 2,000,000 times before actually seeing a time
Would give zero stars 1/5
Keeps crashing!!! Very unhappy
On time 5/5
I really do like this app
App crashes when opening.
Some bugs & app quits randomly
By New Member2
Opens and crashes all day long.
New commuter 5/5
Makes my life so much easier
Constant Crashes 1/5
Removed the app because it crashes soon as it opens. No point in keeping it if it’s broken and the dev won’t fix it.
No alert 1/5
By train alarm
The MDN line Glenview stop does not give any alert (alarm) even when it’s selected on. Please fix ASAP
So so 1/5
On Time 5/5
Love this app!
A GO-TO 5/5
Easy to use, updates in real time. A go-to for schedules
Wasn’t working after latest release... 4/5
But after deleting app and reloading, it works fine.
Works for me i use it for Merta 5/5
Better then anybody else so far
Not working 1/5
By OMG ZA
App will not open with this revision. Please fix ASAP. People cannot use this version.
VERY HELPFUL! 5/5
It is a Godsend for new city folks like me needing to ride the train to work daily.
Excellent app 5/5
Great app with real time tracking and up to date schedules. Never had any issues using it.
Not reliable 1/5
Do not rely on this app if you want accurate updates on train times and status on delays. You will have better chances if you stand at a station and hope a train comes by when you need one.
I commute on the west line from Lombard to Chicago The app is useless. Very inaccurate. Sometimes it reads listen for the announcements on the train platform, well why do we need the app then? Would be nice if I could get an alert pop up every time the train is late to my station (not the destination)Instead it tells if the train is late to Chicago when what the rider needs to know is if the train is late to their stop. Whoever designed this does not commute.
Great app! 5/5
Always perfect for Metra Electric District.
Thank you for fixing the mistake 4/5
The most useful feature of this app was the countdown clock. At a previous update, this was removed.
Thank you for putting it back
Wonderful apt 5/5
I use it daily. Very accurate and the on time info. Is far superior to alerts
By Joe shhet ragman
Great App. except the alarm/ notification feature doesn’t work when your phone is on silent. 4/5
Great user friendly app, except that I would have given it 5 stars if the alarm notification was functional and that it would give you the train stations as well.
Can hardly get it to connect since the last update.
Pretty helpful. I really like this app a lot!
It’s pretty ok 4/5
By Mitch Batis
Generally good, ads aren’t annoying, but I’d like a map of the rails to be added
Charged $ for wrong info 2/5
I entered Elmhurst to Lombard. Got on the train. It passes Lombard. I’m waiting by the door for the next stop, next to the Metra guy. I figured I would let him know that the Metra app has some incorrect info. He ended up charging me for going into the next zone (I had already paid to go to Lombard). I’m thinking “Sure man, I’ll take this joke as far as you wanna take it.” But he took my money, seconds before I got off to uber back home.
I’m not blaming the app for that guy hating his life, which is why I still gave two stars.
Outstanding app 5/5
By Cycle Dad
Great app for the Chicago Metra. Easy to use. It even shows delays so you can change plans on the fly.
User friendly 4/5
Super easy to use, at a glance, schedule. Lines up all of my options and even has minute countdowns til the next train.
Very difficult to navigate. Need to be able to see ‘get on the train/get off the train’ times without 3 clicks and scrolling down. 🙁
Good app need more time to see effective it is
Needlessly complicated 1/5
I can’t even understand quite how to use this.
App doesn’t work 1/5
App was great until this recent update that I was forced to do, now I can’t get any schedule at all for big timber.
9/1/18 - 9/2/18 12:09 am
1. Tried app support but took me to blank page.
2. Newest update. I’m sitting here at 12 am waiting for passenger that wax to arrive at 11:55 pm. As it is past 12 am I can no longer see the train info from yesterday? Train hasn’t arrived. AND there is no info as to how long the delay. What good is the app if it isn’t updated with current info?
THE WORST!!! 1/5
This is quite possibly the sh****est app I’ve ever used. I ride the “L” 4 times a day and heavily rely on the app to know when trains are arriving, even though it’s half accurate at times. I can say on a consistent basis it either A) never opens B) opens, loading sign swirls around then boots you out, or C) open, loads the wrong station, then shuts down after switching to correct station. I tried the free version of the app, kept it updated (which they rarely put out updates to fix bugs) so I then paid for the 4.99 yearly subscription when the free quit working, after doing so it’s not even opening!!! I have attempted multiple times today alone to use this crap-tastic app and can’t even get it to stay open long enough to try and load the schedule!! Save yourself the time and just go to the CTA website for train times!!
Lifesaver App 5/5
Frankly I don’t know what I would do without the On Time app...it’s accurate and awesome!
Johns review bout Metra on time app 4/5
First off it’s “Free” second it works for all major city’s. Just a very good app I’d recommend to others traveling /commuting the US
Delay information 1/5
I wish a real time delay information would be available.
