The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) is the primary public transportation system in the city of Chicago. It connects all neighborhoods to each other and to the central business district. CTA trains and buses also operate, Trains run on both street level and elevated tracks, making them efficient but loud. Buses are smaller but more frequent than trains.
For that reason, people should check their local CMA schedules before planning a trip. Also, call the CTA at 888-968-7282 to check train times before your trip.
The busschedule1.com website is the best way to quickly look up bus and train schedules. However, printed schedules still have value if you know where to look them up.

Although trains are more convenient than buses at certain times of day, they are not always available due to scheduling issues- so people should always check their local schedule first!
