At first the Driver didn't accept my ticket since it wasn't printed and I was showing the pdf ticket in my phone. He made me go and print the ticket and said that in the email it is mentioned we only accept printed version, which after I checked wasn't true. Long story ...At first the Driver didn't accept my ticket since it wasn't printed and I was showing the pdf ticket in my phone. He made me go and print the ticket and said that in the email it is mentioned we only accept printed version, which after I checked wasn't true. Long story short, the printer in the station wasn't working so he did scan the barcode from my phone. He just gave non-sense stress.More

Could you say the station name more clearly on the ticket? (For example, "In front of the gate of Destiny US, between Macy's market and JCPenny's market") There are 3 stations in Syracuse and it is easy to get confused.
