Early days for this app

I was very pleased to find there was a tfw app to replace the arriva app from day 1, however, there are a few teething issues. Firstly, I keep having to log out and back in to buy a ticket as the session has expired. Secondly, I had an issue where I had a conductor waiting to see the ticket and so I opened the app and went to tickets but it just sat at the loading screen for about 2 minutes. The ticket eventually loaded but this was not convenient. I have found I need to keep the app open on the ticket page in order to use it on command. Otherwise so far so good. Thanks.

Carnet tickets are great - but app could be better

As a part time worker, the flexibility of carnet tickets is brilliant and I can’t imagine life without it.

The app isn’t great at managing them though - it often has to reload, just when you want to show them for a ticket inspection or get through the barrier of the station.

It would also really help if the blocks of tickets show as expired if all of the tickets within the block have been used. I have to scroll down 5 or 6 of the same thing to find the tickets I can activate.


Supporting Apple Pay in the App would make this better

Please add support for buying tickets by Apple Pay into the app. Typing a credit card number or saving them in the app is a slow, not as secure and poor purchasing experience.

Please also allow tickets to be added to Apple Wallet like the Trainline app. This makes it much quicker to open your ticket at the barriers or for a guard.

The app works but is using old methods and doesn’t take advantage not of the better options available with today’s technology.
