Ratings and Reviews
Simples - does everything I need as a daily user of the Tyne Tunnels
As other people have suggested you need to register 5 pounds to activate the app then it takes forever for the app to register.
So I’m 5 pound in credit somewhere I need to use the tunnel but the app is still not registered.
As soon as I credit 5 pounds to the account I should be able to use the app straight away.
I am now forced to scrape around for change for the tunnel tomorrow and will have to pay full price.
This needs addressing urgently.
Everything about this app is slow, confirmation, loading money on. Spoke to a representative from the company who was rude and not empathetic. I was basically told that it was my problem not theirs and it seems they have no goals of improving the app. Get with the 21st century guys, we’re giving you money for your service so sort it out. Not worth the money saved.
