Ratings and Reviews
Easy but outdated
This app is brand new but seems it was designed for 2015 not 2020. The biggest drawback is not supporting Apple Pay and rather wants you to directly enter you credit card number which is very inconvenient and less secure.
Just as bad as when it was in beta
I was “fortunate” enough to be part of the beta program for this app. I provided critical feedback which was clearly ignored. My account is still being logged out every 24 hours, interface doesn’t support modern devices, and conscience features like Apple Wallet are not offered. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the payment form appears to be hosted on a completely different service which was enough to make me never want to enter my credit card number.
The DOT knew this 6 months ago and all they changed was the artwork on the landing page. I’ll continue to purchase my tickets from the vending machines or via Amtrak’s less terrible iOS app.
App is formatted for much older phones and does not display correctly, Horrible UI, No ability to purchase round trip tickets, No schedule view or trip planning ability and the Password requirements are lackluster so I wouldn’t trust this app with your credit card info. Come on CT Rail, did you have a middle schooler build this app!? Hopefully V 1.1 will make a huge leap because this current version is laughable for being made in 2020.
