Total POS. Was written for old version of Android and they are too cheap to update the code. So, when you are trying to buy a ticket right before boarding and checkout doesn't work they will just leave you or take you to Hoboken to buy a ticket at a kiosk. But be fast (< 1 minute) because if they've boarded and you aren't back they leave and then you have to wait 20 minutes. Would give 0 stars if I could.

This app is great until it's not. Nothing more frustrating than having paid for the month and getting extorted for more money because their app fails and that becomes the consumers problem. They don't reimburse, customer service is only open for 4 hours a day during the week. The bus tracker rarely works accurately and now I'm being notified that my phones operating system is too advanced for this app. Total waste of time and money.

Horrible. App would not let me complete my transaction. Tried it 20 times on one phone, tried it 5 times on another. Would not continue after entering my card information. Ferry personnel were not helpful at all, just kept repeating 'you have to download the app' which I had. They let us ride to our destination, but the experience was terrible & frustrating.
