The CTA is quietly testing a new website that detects your location - or lets you provide one - and then quickly offers up a map listing all the nearby CTA bus and rail options and their estimated arrival times.
Called CTA Discover, the service also provides customer alerts and information about the bus stop or rail station. You can click on a bus on the map and it will draw a map of that bus route. Of course, there's a mobile version too.
CTA Discover is still in beta testing. I haven't had the chance yet to ask the CTA about when it will be ready to prime time. But it shows a lot of promise in my limited testing.
Give it a shot and tell us what you think.
