No cash accepted on London buses from Sunday as Transport for London moves to cashless system
Buses in London will no longer accept cash fares from Sunday as the capital’s transport provider moves to a cashless system.
Passengers will only be able to board a bus using Oyster cards, a contactless payment bank card or a prepaid or concessionary ticket.
Transport for London says just one per cent of passengers still use cash to pay for their bus tickets.
Mike Weston, TfL’s director of buses, said: “The way our customers pay for goods and services is evolving, so we need to ensure our ticketing evolves too.
“Removing cash from our bus network not only offers customers a quicker and more efficient bus service, it enables us to make savings of £24m a year, which will be reinvested to further improve London’s transport network.”
