Contactless is rolled out on London buses

Credit Cards

Much like the way the Oyster card works, you’ll be able to use your contactless card on most London Buses from the 13 December 2012 to pay for a single bus journey.

To pay for a journey, you will just need to touch your contactless card flat on the yellow card reader as you board the bus – exactly the same as when you use an Oyster Card.

Contactless is a function on certain debit, credit and charge cards that allows you to safely make a quick and easy payment for goods or services for an amount that is £20 or less without entering a PIN.

Where you see the contactless wave displayed (like the one on this page) and have a contactless card, you can make a contactless payment where the amount is for £20 or less.
