NFC contactless payments on London bus journeys hit one million | NFC Marketing |

Over one million journey on London buses have now been payed for using contactless NFC payment systems, Transport for London have today revealed.

The scheme, which launched four months ago and allows commuters to pay for single journeys by tapping an NFC-enabled credit card against an Oyster reader, attracts 10,000 users each day, with over 1,000 new cards being registered to use the service every week.


As the system remains more expensive to use than an Oyster card, it's intended to only be used in situations when your Oyster isn't handy or has run out of credit. As such, Oyster cards remain the most popular payment system on the TFL network by a significant margin.
