CTA Train Tracker updated with new features

May 15, 2013 1:32:33 PM PDT
Improvements are being added to the CTA's train tracker, including arrival time estimates, a train station locator and a new search function for finding your station on the tracker.

"Follow this train" allows you to click or tap on an approaching train on CTA Train Tracker and get estimates of how many minutes it will take to get to each of the upcoming stops.

"Stops near me" lets customers with GPS-enabled devices detect the closest stations to your location.

Station name search will allow you to quickly get station information by typing in just part or all of a station name, instead of having to scroll down a screen to find a stop.

Improved schedule-based information will provide more information for customers who travel off-peak or begin their trips at or near terminals.

A new train location map lets you see where trains are, in near-real-time, on an interactive desktop map. Click on a station and get train arrival information; or, click on a train and find out the estimated number of minutes it will take to get to the next several rail stations. CTA also currently offers this feature on CTA Bus Tracker to allow customers to see where buses are.
