Needs a senior purchase option
I would give this app a much better review if the discount options were loaded into the ticket purchase function. But although the app links to my amtrak user account which I've customized with both my senior option and AAA card, neither options are available on the app. This means I can't purchase directly from the app and have to do so from the website. It's annoying and I've always wondered if they could fix it but prefer to reap the higher fares where they can. In other respects I'm pleased with it. It shows train status, routes, and timetables. You can also modify your ticket from the app and it will retain your senior purchase rate. Best of all you can display your ticket to the conductor from the app and I find that convenient. Something I'd love is if it retained a year's worth of train ride history and allowed you to note the purpose of the trip in the app for record purposes. Oh well. I give it a B. Functional and much better than not having it, but less than it could be.
App gradually improves. Better, but still only OK.
The app has a trip lookup feature that allows users to retrieve their e-ticket for paperless electronic scanning while on the train. The feature indicates that users can enter their reservation number and their email address, but this is only true if tickets are purchased using the app. If tickets -- including e-tickets -- are purchased in any other manner (telephone, in-person, kiosk or website), a user cannot enter their reservation number and email and retrieve their ticket, which essentially makes the app somewhat useless. A message comes up that explains that due to the way the ticket was purchased, ticket information cannot be displayed, and that Amtrak is working to "expand" their system. It seems that the cross-platform functionality should have been in place with the launch of the app. I am glad that the app has been updated to In luxe the purchase of multi-ride tickets. This is especially great for commuters.
Decent application. Does most everything I believe one would want it to do. The one thing I find lacking is a map. It would be nice if somehow you could access a map of the United States with the train route laid out on it. I live in Oklahoma where there is a dead-end line and sometimes it is not the most efficient to take that line in order to get somewhere; especially since I'm particularly far away from that station. The addition of a map in app would be much appreciated, otherwise I can't find much to complain about.
