Transport for London introduces contactless card payment on buses from today

First published in News by

Bus passengers can pay for their journey using credit, debit or charge cards from today.

People using contactless cards can use the system, which is expected to be rolled out on tubes, trams, the DLR and London Overground in the coming months.

Transport for London (TfL) hopes the change will provide an alternative to Oyster cards for people who have forgotten their card or do not have enough pay as you go credit.

At this stage, contactless payment cards can only be used to pay for single bus journeys and daily price caps will not apply.

Extensive advice is available at www.tfl.gov.uk. Use the search term "contactless payment"

The Contactless Payment Card, CPC, must be issued in the UK and may only be used to purchase a single fare but at the discounted Oyster Card single fare rate.

If you change buses you will need to pay again you can claim for a Bus Saver ticket at www.tfl.gov.uk/conta
