Transport for London (TfL) has confirmed Apple Pay can be used on London’s public transport system when it launches in the UK next month.
Shashi Verma, Director of Customer Experience, TfL, said: “With around one in ten of all contactless transactions in the UK now taking place on our transport services in London, we are delighted to welcome Apple Pay as another new and convenient contactless way for our customers to pay for their travel”
TfL was the first public transport provider to accept contactless payment cards and will continue this record of innovation by becoming the first to accept Apple Pay. One in ten contactless transactions in the UK are made on TfL’s network, making TfL one of the largest contactless merchants worldwide and over four million unique credit or debit cards have been used on TfL services so far. More than 1.2 million contactless transactions are made each day on TfL services – representing 17 per cent of pay as you go journeys.
