Smartphone ticketing system on Thames Clippers

Smartphone ticketing has been introduced on Thames Clipper fleets throughout the capital.

The technology means commuters simply need to download the free app to their android or iPhone to be able to instantly buy tickets at any time.

Gone are the days of fumbling for spare coins, tracking down an Oyster card or waiting in long queues to buy a ticket as once customers have electronically paid for their fare, they can head straight on board.

The river bus service, which stops off at a pier in Canary Riverside, serves routes from Putney to Woolwich, with a 20-minute frequency at central London calling points.

Both single fares and monthly season tickets will be available on the app.

Josh Nicklin, head of marketing at Masabi, developers of the mobile ticketing system, said: "As a London-based company just moments from the Thames we're looking forward to our river bus commute getting even better."
