Cashless buses welcomed

12 May 2014
Welcoming the announcement that buses in London will become cashless from July, Stephen Joseph, Campaign for Better Transport’s chief executive, said:

"We welcome the move by TfL towards a cashless public transport system. Cashless ticketing can help make London's transport networks easier and more flexible to use and is popular with many passengers. However, it's important that TfL make good their assurances that no one will be left stranded late at night because their Oyster Card has run out of credit and provision needs to be made for passengers on buses which cross over TfL boundaries where Oyster doesn't operate.”

ENDS
