Mobile ticketing app launches for Oyster Card customers
Transport for London (TfL) has launched a new mobile app for Oyster card customers to provide a range of ticketing services.
Developed with Cubic Transportation Systems, the app is available now on Android or Apple iOS devices and will enable customers to manage their travel fares and payments, top up their cards and view their journey history on the go via Android or Apple iOS devices.
This includes enabling customers to buy travel products, including pay-as-you-go, weekly, monthly or annual travel, using the app and then ‘pick them up’ after 30 minutes by touching the card on the yellow reader at London Underground, Docklands Light Railway, London Trams and TfL Rail stations as part of their journey. Mobile app purchases can also be added at London River piers and National Rail stations that accept Oyster cards.
Future updates will allow products to be delivered and picked up on any of TfL’s 9,000 buses and will also expand viewing of journey histories to include those paid via contactless pay- as-you-go bankcards.
