Ratings and Reviews
Normally this app works fine, it’s very glitchy but gets the job done. Recently it has been showing a pop-up staying that there is “No Network Connectivity” though I have been on working WiFi and cellular. This makes the app entirely useless.
The schedule for the Union Pacific north line provides incorrect information. Train times are wrong in this app.
This app is trash, all the taxes we pay to Chicago and this is what we get. It won’t let you input address.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
