Useful app that needs some tweaks
Pros: Works great for eticket and changing ticket times. Works for me on Acela via wifi and lte.
Cons: No way to change the station for an existing ticket. That is unacceptable as my schedule does not revolve around waiting on hold to speak to Amtrak on the phone for something simple like that.
Horrible: When cancelling a ticket or making a change that results in a credit, the refunded money goes to an evoucher vs going back to your CC. To me, this is completely useless since my business trips are billed back on the actual. So today, took an earlier Acela that resulted in a $63 credit. What am I going to do with a $63 evoucher?!? Results in more time for my admin to reach out to Amtrak via snail mail to request a real refund. Fix this problem asap! I have no issues connecting my Amex to this app so it can charge and credit as needed, just protect it with TouchID.
Just like their train service: user UNfriendly
The UX people who built this should take a look at apps like JetBlue or even American Airlines. On those apps, it's EASY and obvious to find your itinerary and e-ticket. On the Amtrak app... Well. I am lucky I took a screenshot of my ticket on an impulse because I couldn't quickly find where my ticket was in the app (as the ticket taker-lady was literally yelling at me to hurry up! at the station) and then, when I tried to look up my ticket (for which I needed to first go to my email and find my receipt to find my reservation number) I got an error. The app couldn't display my ticket. "This ticket couldn't be displayed because of how the ticket was purchased or the payment method used." I BOUGHT THE TICKET USING THE APP. Get it together, Amtrak.
Also, the people leaving many-star reviews are totally either Amtrak employees or employees of the vendor who built the app.
App is a success
I used this app on my latest trip to the NC State Fair. It worked great for scheduling and purchase of my ticket. Train coming home was not on time and I was able to see its timeline with this app so I was able to stay at the fair a little longer. Well done Amtrak. I finely done loaded a free app that delivered.
I also like the e-ticket function. Use the app to explore travel options. And you know, when I cannot figure it out there's a phone number to call and they are very helpful!
