Americaneagle.com assisted CTA in developing and launching the new CTA Train Tracker. This highly- anticipated tool enables CTA riders to view estimated arrival times for all 144 trains stations across 8 rail lines on CTA’s desktop or mobile website. In helping to develop CTA Train Tracker, Americaneagle.com worked closely with the CTA to integrate with the software that monitors the agency’s signal system, allowing CTA Train Tracker to deliver the predicted arrival times of approaching trains to be posted within a 15 minute timeframe. The tool was built to then refresh prediction times every 20-30 seconds, giving riders the most up-to-date information available.
The tool was also created with a dynamic yet user-friendly interface for the desktop and mobile versions of the tool. Riders can choose the number of results that appear and how they are sorted, such as by track, route, or time, providing a truly personalized experience.
