Great idea... but...

I like having the schedule at my fingertips (because printing from the website is impossible) however I would love it MORE to have GPS tracking of the trains — similar to Uber where you can see how close the cars are. How great it would be to know how close the train is so I know when to start running or when to be cool and walk.

Elegant UI

Light Rail is a beautifully crafted app and well deserved of a 5 star rating. I come from a traditional Wolfpack where most of have yet to develop opposable thumbs. This makes any touchscreen tech cumbersome. We use our 3rd hamstrings to press the pretty buttons. However, we all believe in reincarnation and hope to achieve complete oneness with our iPhones as my Wolfpack uses Apple Script. As the rain forest is being consumed by the destructive nature of man we expect to be extinct by Thanksgiving. Therefore, in a few short months we will all purchase annual Light Rail passes to get to the Epicenter easier. I eat raw vegetables and cut rocks. Meow.

I hope you made it to the Epicenter in time.

Train schedule only

The app is nice for knowing the train schedule and where the closest station is in relation to your location. There should be someway of tracking the actual blue line schedule. For instance when the train is running behind, this app then becomes useless. I have to then check Twitter to determine what potentially happened. I pretty much know the schedule already for my route, so the app has less value to me. That is why I gave it 3 stars for being just average.

Developer Response ,

Good idea! I can probably build in something that takes that into account. Version 3 coming soon!
