*Edit* - Seems there's a new 2024 feature wherein if you activate your flexpass, then close the app, then bring it back up, it does NOT default to your active ticket on the main screen. I assume they are now trying to trick people into activating an extra ticket on the return trip. The "Alerts" button should be on the app's homepage given that the trains are delayed all the time. Instead, you have to click on a tiny thing in the upper right hand corner and then select from a utilities list.

Currently, it won't allow me to purchase commuter rail tickets; this could be due to my TAP pass malfunctioning and having been replaced less than a month after I'd renewed. For clarity, the TAP pass was saved into the app, but I don't believe it was updated when my pass was replaced, only when it was renewed. I have to go into Boston to pick up my new ID (we have mail thieves), and it's going to be twice as much just to get there because of this glitch.

This app is okay but it has one really annoying "feature" and that is that you cannot add a payment card prior to making a purchase. I ride the commuter rail very infrequently and for whatever reason it lost the card info from the last time I bought a ticket. I'm not good with the on-screen keyboard on my phone and when I went to purchase a ticket just now, it took forever because I had to re-enter my credit card info. It would have been much better if I could have done that beforehand, but that apparently is not possible. Also this is NOT the fault of the app, but the fact that the commuter rail and subway use completely different payment systems is ridiculous. A CharlieCard would be 10x easier to use than this app.

Thanks for the feedback!! We completely understand the frustration with not being able to add a credit card prior to purchasing a ticket. A work around for this has been talked about and hopefully something will come of it in a future release. MBTA mTicket Team
