CTA Bus Tracker

February 15, 2011 by USA Post 

CTA Bus Tracker, Transit for the masses: the part of the plan of Carol Moseley Braun is “to develop the CTA with more revenue from more riders with better marketing for tourists and visitors, especially outside of peak hours,” according to the questionnaire she completed for RedEye. Braun would have its work cut out for her. CTA has seen slight declines in ridership for the last two years. Overall attendance fell about 1 percent last year compared to 2009. The last time the CTA has experienced an increase in ridership has been a boost of 5 percent from 2007 to 2008, according to reports from the CTA ridership.

Off-peak saw steeper declines than the ridership of the week. Saturday boardings on average fell 1.2 percent last year, while boarding Sunday were down about 2 percent.
Ridership fell last year in part because of service cuts of 18 percent for buses and trains to 9 percent. Rate increases and reductions in other services are a possibility for next year.

Some suburban Chicago waking Monday noticed a problem with a popular tool for transit: CTA Bus Tracker not working. CTA spokeswoman Kim Myles said a technical problem during the night caused the outage, which had not been fixed at 8.30 am Tuesday morning.

Myles said that staff worked on the issue, but the CTA had no estimate of when service will be resumed. Bus Tracker has been extremely popular since the CTA, he introduces. The tool provides an estimate of arrival times for each bus stop in the city.

This January, the CTA issued Train Tracker, a tool that allows users to see the arrival times of trains at stops in the city. However, Bus Tracker is based on GPS technology, while Train Tracker uses the signal lines to estimate arrival times. Train Tracker functioning during the outage.
