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.
