It’s overrated ,

Easy but outdated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.

Love the Tenement Museum ,

Shameful and useless

I struggled with this app for an hour setting up an account and trying to log in. I couldn’t access any features without logging in, and since I was never able to successfully log in - I kept getting an error message to “check your phone network” - I have no idea what those features actually were. Not only was it unusable, it felt very outdated and insecure, and now I’m worried I’m going to have reset all my passwords, since I had to try four different ones in my failed effort to set up an account. I would never enter any payment details into this app, and it’s absolutely shameful that this is the only app to check train schedules and buy e-tickets. CT DOT should be absolutely ashamed of themselves, and we should all be outraged that public money was used to pay a contractor to make this garbage app.

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.
