I use this regularly and it's amazingly accurate...well done!
My favorite and most-used App! Would love to see built-in CTA and RTA system maps, so I can plan my own routes. That & Metra. Thx!
It's only day one but I'm already in love! Worth every penny....
Works great. If you're using the free version, do yourself a favor and just upgrade. It's well worth it.
Having trouble using trek planner feature. Tells me "could not establish connection with server" with ask bars and on 3g network - samsung vibrant
Public transit is my chariot. This app gives it wheels. Both the CTA and Pace info are invaluable. Wonderful app with regular, responsive updates.
