TfL’s director of customer experience, Shashi Verma, said: “With around one in ten of all contactless transactions in the UK now taking place on our transport services in London, we are delighted to welcome Apple Pay as another new and convenient contactless way for our customers to pay for their travel.

“I would encourage anyone who uses pay as you go to try contactless. There’s no need to top-up, just touch in and out with your mobile device, credit or debit card.”
