Gone are the days when one had to wait in line to buy a ticket for using transportation services in London. With the level of digital convenience at our fingertips, we can not only buy a ticket online, but also use digital payment options that only require our phones or smartwatches. Now, to smooth out the process even further, Apple has launched its Express Transit feature for Transport for London (TfL) customers.
Contactless payments make up for a big chunk of payments in the TfL system. However, it is not always seamless since Apple device users need to authenticate the payment via FaceID or TouchID. With the Express Payment option, one can simply tap their iPhone or Apple Watch on a yellow contactless card reader and they are free to travel. Here’s all you need to know about the new service and how it works.
