London Buses Accept Mobile Payments via EEs Cash on Tap

London TfL New BusTfL has begun accepting mobile payments from EEs Cash on Tap service on its network of 8,600 buses.

Cash on Tap, launched last year in partnership with MasterCard, enables users of compatible Android phones to make contactless payments. Its already accepted in-store by retailers including McDonalds, Greggs and Caffè Nero.

This is the initial phase of deployment for EEs service on London transport, with the Underground, DLR and Overground network set to accept Cash on Tap payments from 16 September.

“More people use London’s buses than all the other bus services across the country combined, so the need for speedy and simple payment solutions is paramount,” said EE chief consumer marketing officer Pippa Dunn. “That’s why we’ve been working hard to bring our contactless mobile payments service, Cash on Tap, to TFL’s network – removing the need for customers to queue for a ticket, or hunt through their pockets and bags to find the right card.”
