I’m extremely confused why I can’t purchase train tickets on the metra app. Seems like That should of been the first thing programed on a passenger train app. I will say I appreciate it always being up to date but it’s extremely annoying have to go to the website if I want to get a ticket. Just put it all in one place. I also don’t u defat and why attendants are the stations are never there past 2 and passengers get charged extra for that. Blows my mind.
Great planning tool. 5/5
By Chicago Joe
Read train schedules and real time updates with ease.
Schedule accuracy is spotty 1/5
Great app 5/5
I have been using this app for a number of years and I love the up to date info or latest updates. Have recommended this app to everyone I know who takes metra.
Good for schedule and that’s about it 3/5
This app keeps is a great train schedule and is awesome for looking up various train times quickly based on where you want to go. Anything else it offers is practically useless. Its train tracking and check in in real time is useless. In fact, it is extremely dishonest about train locations. For example, my train is 5 min late right now and the app says it’s already 3 stops away. A good app but far from a great one.
On time 5/5
I really do like this app
Just bad 1/5
I’m surprised this is the official app for Chicago metra, it’s bogged down with terrible performance and a ton of ads. How isn’t there a free metra app with updated information? The updates given hardly ever reflect actual timeframes. This app is quintessential Chicago transit; corrupt and having money go into the pockets of executives/administration over workers, new equipment/technologies.
Update: I take the train 5-7 days of the week, since I’ve posted this review my trained has honestly been delayed 50 percent of the time, and not by a couple minutes, rather 10-15. Two weeks ago our train was stuck at a red light for 30 minutes. Metra is corrupt and by using an app that has ads is a prime example
Good app for travelers 5/5
Good app. Sometimes it locks up but I just close it out and it always works.
Love this app 5/5
Wonderful for trip planning!
Perfect Ap for train schedule. 5/5
No more digging out the paper schedule. Instant information at your fingertips along with delay info. Perfect for what it does.
Great app 5/5
This is a great app. I am able to follow my son as he comes home and it gives me alerts regarding the trains.
Lots of great useful features 5/5
Well designed and very useful. I especially like the dynamic tool that displays the current arrival time of a given train, taking into account current delays. This feature is practical and allows me to plan if I am picking someone up at a station or prepping dinner.
Great App! 5/5
By A kaiser
Highly recommended if you use the Metra.
Great App 5/5
Great app. Totally up to the minute! Love the countdown.
Prompt and Efficient Information 5/5
I’m new to this app; so far, it’s been great!
Dam pop ups ads 2/5
Make them $hity ads go away
Useless and slow 1/5
The first thing I noticed about this particular app and related apps is that it will not hold the transit times after you close the app even if you immediately reopen it. It takes 2 to 3 minutes to download all of the train times. This is unnecessary and frustrating.
Next is the fact that it will not accommodate travels that switch lines such as purple to red. It simply says That no such connection is possible. This is unfortunate. Other programs clearly accommodate train switches. It’s unbelievable that this company would produce so many inferior products.
Needs work 3/5
Easy convenient 5/5
Easy way to get Metra times 5/5
Much better than Ventra for figuring out train schedules.
Hasn’t failed me yet! 5/5
Easy to use
Best App!! 5/5
By David the Wedding Band Leader
This app is super easy to use. 100% accurate. They’re not interested in selling you anything just getting you the info you need as quickly as possible. It’s a life saver. Great job! Highly recommend download it whether you commute every day or even just on the weekends. Smart people who take the train need this!
Works well 5/5
Define favorite station pairs and one click to check reverse direction. Perfect. I have six pairs defined for 3 lines to downtown Chicago, with couple of stations on each line. Works perfect to check exact time, figure out if I should go to next station if earlier station is cutting too close etc.
Ad for premium version won't close 1/5
So annoying. I click no thanks a million times and it stays open. Can't read the train times
Metra App Highly Recommended! 5/5
I have been using the app for over 1 full year. I can attest that it provides excellent information and is very reliable!
Classic government decision 1/5
They force you to use this piece of sh$$!
Quick, easy, informative 4/5
Used whenever traveling downtown to keep informed on train status; very helpful.
Works great!! 5/5

Great App 5/5
By Megadeth Ken
Works well and is accurate. Good for a quick reference when commuting to and from work
METRA time...my time 5/5
Easy to plan, fun to use...
Great Asset for the Daily User 5/5
By Buyer guy
Easy to read grid. Loads quickly. Usually accurate in real time. Ability for multiple favorites, and on different lines. Well worth the $5/year for every day riders.
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
App crashes when opening.
Some bugs & app quits randomly
By New Member2
Opens and crashes all day long.
