Not sure what all the complaints are about. I thought the app was simple enough. Install it and start it. Tell the app what zone (200 for the purple garage, and theyre all clearly marked), license plate number, and a nickname for the car. Then just specify the session length and a payment method, and start your session. I dont like having to pay to park at RTC either, but i didnt have any trouble with the app itself.
Paying to park in Reston is bad enough, doing it through this app is horrible. Not intuitive and gives every incentive to not go to Reston and to make sure every visit is less than 15 minutes long. I feel very sorry for the merchants at RTC who are at the mercy of the landlord. Used to be my favorite place to shop. Now avoided anyway I can.
Good reason NOT to visit RTC! This app is bad...really bad. I would like to meet the app developers that made this and ask them why? It's not like they didn't have any other parking apps that work well that they could copy off of...
An absolute nightmare to use, not intuitive, not simple. Boston Properties claim to be groundbreaking and original with this app but it falls short of others like Parkmobile. Save yourself the headache and shop elseware where the parking is free or they use a traditional parking app/company.
If you're new to RTC, this app isn't very user friendly. Maybe spell out the directions a little better? I'm pretty savvy and still had an issue with using it. It also sucks that every time I have to go to the gym I'm going to have to stand in a line of people to get a validation code. Poor planning, poor execution. Almost like people who've been counting money too long came up with the idea.
System is all over the place Sucks that we have to pay for parking, and it sucks even more that they didn't even use 1 system for the machines in the parking lots and the cellular application. My parents aren't the most tech savvy people so explaining to them how to use both systems along with the validation has been very difficult.
