CTA Bus Schedules

The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) means well. They have a useful website with all possible bus schedules available, in PDF format. Unfortunately, to select a bus route from that site requires Javascript -- which a lot of phones don't support (including mine). It's no big deal that the maps themselves require Acrobat Reader to display -- most fancy PDA phones nowadays come with a PDA viewer, or one can be downloaded. But lacking that crucial Javascript support, there's no way for me to even select which bus route schedule I want to view.

Who remembers which bus schedule they need when they're sitting in front of the computer? I take so many different buses lately that I can't keep all their schedules straight. Or, I'm standing at a bus stop, wondering how long until the next bus is supposed to come through, and wishing that I could look it up on my PDA phone.

That's why I created this page, with a simple link to each bus schedule on the list. Click on a bus route name/number to download the schedule, in PDF, directly from the CTA website.
