There's an app literally called Transit that has served me well

like

This is the official one. It's pretty good and keeps getting better with updates

Transit Stop

like

Citymapper

like

Transit stop shows the bus coming on the map. That said what’s sometimes challenging is that if you are near the start of the line or run, it uses the schedule until it gets data from CTA, which is basically when the bus hits the first stop

like

Citymapper! Works in every city, shows all options and eta to get from A to B (incl. train, bus, Uber, walk, etc) and updates in real time based on delays for public transit

like

Ventra

Are any of these the ones or you can see the bus coming? I tried a few and they're always off so I either have to wait in the freezing cold or end up missing it

Well buses by nature are less reliable timing wise than the L. Even if the app says it’ll be at a stop in 10, it could be more or less based on traffic - you just have to track it closely.

“Transit"

Get the Ventra app. It’s straight from CTA and is always accurate
