Ratings and Reviews
A must have for any commuter that uses Metra. I can quickly glance whether in he morning or sitting at work to see when the next train is. Then I just quickly text the train info to my ride, who also has the app, which makes for an easier commute. I have occasionally noticed errors, but for the 3 weeks I have been using it (since 1/9/18) it has been really great.
I wish I was provided with track information (e.g. Track 9) for trains departing Union Station. I realize this information may not be available from Metra but my life would be so much easier. For some reason at Union, only departure time of the train is displayed by the tracks, not the train number (e.g. 2244). Therefore, train number is irrelevant when at Union because it’s not used. I still have to run to the board to check what the track number my train is on. Either that or run to every door.
Best app to track Chicago’s Metra
I use this app every morning when I walk out of my house to check how late my train is running—to know if I need to run to catch my morning train. I also use this app every evening while I’m on the train in Chicago to track how late my train will arrive at my home station. It’s essential for me to let my wife know how late my train is coming home.
This app also has a great feature that you can text someone which train you are on, and the estimated time it will arrive at your pre-saved home station.
This is an essential app for any regular Metra rider.
Ok now, wouldn’t have paid to upgrade if it started like this
I pulled the app up this morning and over an hour worth of trains is missing from the app for my origin/destination. :/
Also, I enjoyed the ability to add which train I was on and see the stats of how often it was late. That has now been removed.
And if you want to use the app to tell others if your train looks to be running late, it is a bit annoying as it switches to be destination > origin when you get closer to that station. I understand this for using the app in the morning and taking the train again in the evening but when it is a shorter time, it would be nice if it could stay on the same route so I could keep tracking if Metra is late without having to tap to reverse the trip.
