Get on board quicker with contactless travel

From 16 September 2014, getting around London with contactless is quick, easy and secure. You can now use your contactless payment card on the bus, Tube, tram, DLR, London Overground and most National Rail services in London.

Travelling with contactless is cheaper than paying with cash and normally costs the same as an adult-rate Oyster pay as you go fare.

It is a great alternative to Oyster and paper tickets. Use your contactless payment card in exactly the same way as you use your Oyster card, touching in and out for every journey.
