London Buses Stop Accepting Cash As Payment

6 July 2014

BBC News:

Cash can no longer be used on any of London’s buses in a move that Transport for London (TfL) says will save £24m a year.

Passengers will need a prepaid or concessionary ticket, Oyster card or a contactless payment card to travel.

TfL said only 0.7% of all bus journeys were paid for with cash and that tourists were unlikely to be affected.

First buses go cashless, what next? It’s no wonder Apple (and everyone else) is scrambling to dominate mobile payments.
