Ratings and Reviews
Crappy app for international travellers
Can't buy tickets through app because I don't have a US address. This is stupid in this day and age! I travel to Chicago frequently and can't buy through the app but can easily do this with New York and New Jersey apps. It's time for Chicago to join the modern age.
U.S. billing addresses only
Disappointed that only U.S. residents can create accounts and only credit cards with U.S. billing addresses can be used for payment in this version.
Would definitely use when visiting Chicago if/when this changes.
Intuitive, function, simple. Good app for Chicagoland transit.
