I just installed the latest version today. The FAQ, the Contact Us, and several other links come up with page not found. That this is a brand new version of the app I find that unbelievably incompetent of the programmers. The only reason I downloaded the app was to get notifications as the system is changing as of July 1st. However, I cannot find any place in the Android version of the app to set up notifications. The instructions online seem to apply to iphone. That's on VRE and not the app.

Regardless of how I enter the credit card it's always rejected. This is the credit card I use everywhere. This is the credit card I use at the VRE stations. This app won't accept new style of credit cards where the numbers are not embossed on the front. The scanning of credit cards are absolutely atrocious. Hold the credit card in the correct position. Make sure to maintain it at the exact distance so all the borders are lit up. Don't move. Don't even breathe. Imagine if you had a disability.

This new update is the worst,it just leads you to the VRE website. What's the point? These old app allowed you to see how much longer until the next closest train arrives using GPS.
