  • London Underground to accept NFC payments


    Users of mobile network operator EE’s Cash on Tap NFC payments service will be able to use their mobile phone to pay for travel on the London Underground, Docklands Light Railway and London Overground services from 16 September, when Transport for London (TfL) introduces the ability for passengers to pay for travel using contactless cards.

    Contactless payments were introduced on London’s bus network in December 2012, giving passengers the option of paying for travel with open loop contactless cards in addition to the existing prepaid Oyster cards issued by TfL. 825,000 passengers have used the service to pay for 17m bus journeys so far and around 65,000 journeys a day are currently paid for with a contactless card. The extension of contactless payments to the London Underground has been undergoing pilot testing since April 2014.
