Will using a contactless payment card be the same as using pay as you go on Oyster?

Just touch your contactless payment card on a yellow reader in the same way as for Oyster:

  • as you board a bus
  • before you board a tram
  • at the start of all journeys on Tube, DLR and London Overground and again at the end of the journey.

If you don’t touch in and out, you could be charged a maximum fare or be liable to a Penalty fare.
