Dear Mr XXXX,

Contactless cardI am writing to let you know that we are introducing tomorrow; this will initially be available on any of London’s 8,500 buses.*

If you have a contactless debit, credit or , you can now use this to pay for a single journey by touching in on the yellow card reader. So if you run out of credit on your Oyster card or normally pay cash, you may find this a useful alternative. The fare will be the same as a single fare, although Oyster daily price capping does not currently apply.

If you have more than one card that is now accepted on ’s buses (for example an and a card), please choose which card you intend to pay with, and touch it separately on the yellow reader. If you present two cards together, the reader will normally reject them both, but there is a small possibility of payment being taken from a card which you did not intend to use.

For more information, please visit

Yours sincerely,

Shashi Verma
Director of Experience
*Contactless payment will not be available on the Heritage buses that run on some parts of routes 9 and 15 and there will be no transfer discount between Bus Feeder routes T31, T32, T33, 130 and 314 and trams
