4/5 stars

better than the other cta apps offered at this time

:
I used this briefly on a recent trip to chicago. Being to the city for the 1st time, I liked this app better than all the other ones that I downloaded. The other apps require you to already know which bus line you need. As an out-of-towner, I found it much easier to have the app tell me which bus to take & where to walk to get to a specific location instead of trying to find it out for myself - this app does that while the others did not. You can search for common tourist attractions or addresses. I like this app the most out of the ones offered. This app couldn't find some locations for me so I went back to google maps & stuck with it since it easier to find places - but the potential is there for this app.

5/5 stars

Great

:
I downloaded this app in September 2010 and it was really buggy so I didn't use it much til I decided to give it another try yesterday. Whatever updates have been made have improved this app a ton. For those complaining about precise el and bus times- they run quite frequently. Don't worry, it will get there eventually.

5/5 stars

Real Lifesaver

:
I have had TransitGenie for a couple months. Yesterday, its true value was demonstrated. I was caught in the transit meltdown from the Brown line derailment. Getting off the train, I had not idea where I was or how to get anywhere. All the taxis were long gone. I saw hordes of people waiting at the nearest bus stop. Instead, I pulled out TransitGenie. I told it I want to get from "here" using the GPS to "work", which I had entered before. TransitGenie said not to take the nearest bus, but walk 1/3 mile to another line. I did, beat the crowds, and got to work almost as soon as normal!
