2. BNSF schedule changes on June 11, hoping the app is updated by then

This is quite possibly the sh****est app I’ve ever used. I ride the “L” 4 times a day and heavily rely on the app to know when trains are arriving, even though it’s half accurate at times. I can say on a consistent basis it either A) never opens B) opens, loading sign swirls around then boots you out, or C) open, loads the wrong station, then shuts down after switching to correct station. I tried the free version of the app, kept it updated (which they rarely put out updates to fix bugs) so I then paid for the 4.99 yearly subscription when the free quit working, after doing so it’s not even opening!!! I have attempted multiple times today alone to use this crap-tastic app and can’t even get it to stay open long enough to try and load the schedule!! Save yourself the time and just go to the CTA website for train times!!

Love this app

I honestly haven’t made use of any of the additional features of this app at all yet, so I can’t expertly speak on them. So far, the train info that I’ve looked up has always been accurate, is more reliable than Metra’s own website, which has several times given me incorrect info on weekends, and I love the little countdown feature. Super useful!
