The NUMBER 1 TRAVEL APP! I will tell u, but u know that there r a lot of bus tracker, L tracker apps out their, however this APP 'TREKING' is the most accurate and up to date software out there. Moreover, it's cheap, but I am more concerned with making the bus than shelling out a few bucks! Lastly, the app has been out and doing good for me. Since Droid 1.0....

Awesome developer, even better app I needed a app for school so in can see when those trains come so I won't just be sitting and wondering, and just as well for the buses in Chicago. Now I don't pay for apps, this is the only app that I have payed money for, and it was worth it. The dev (when you email him, not leave 1 star reviews) answers questions in a very timely manner, and is very nice when explaining things. Overall, this app, for anyone living, working, or going to school in Chicago (not driving) could benefit well from this app. Ty
