OK all you late Friday-night partiers: Prepare now to survive without CTA Bus Tracker to guide you home tonight after 11 p.m.

Bus Tracker will be offline from 11 p.m. tonight till about 5 a.m. Saturday for software upgrades.

from terminals and garages to begin their routes,” according to the press release.

  • It would have been nice if they could have set it to auto respond with something a little informative. "Bus-tracker is currently down for upgrades. Sorry for the inconvenience." instead of: "Error EC0028: Operation timed out after 15 seconds with 0 bytes received"

    Real classy CTA.. #facepalm
