Ill-timed, don't you think? Right after the inception of a new service??
Even the Hartford Line didn't have a screw up this bad so early.

There are many factors militating against the Valley Flyer, especially the fare schedule. For example, an adult, one-way ticket (without additional discounts) from NHT to NHV costs $33. That fare, however, can be reduced to $25.75 by purchasing two tickets: NHT→SPG ($13) and SPG→NHV ($12.75).
I don't know if you would be allowed to combine tickets like that. This isn't taking Shore Line East from Stamford to New London when you could technically show 2 separate tickets for STM-NHV and NHV-NLC as there are two different sets of crews (Metro-North and Amtrak)
