Android Pay accepted for travel in London

Customers can use Android Pay on their mobile phone to travel using pay as you go on TfL services, including the Tube, buses and trams, as well as most National Rail services in London.

The new payment app, developed by Google, supports MasterCard and Visa credit and debit cards from many of the UK’s major financial institutions. To use Android Pay, customers just need to download the app from the Google Play Store and set up their account with their bank card. They then simply touch in and out with the top half of their phone on the yellow card reader at a station, or touch in only on a bus or at a tram stop, in the same way they use their Oyster or contactless payment card.

Countdown moving to the TfL website

If you still use our old countdown websites to check on live bus arrivals, you’ll notice a change from June 1 as you’ll be redirected to the main TfL website instead.

Many of you may have already seen the message about this change, which confirmed that the following websites will no longer be available from June 1:

http://countdown.tfl.gov.uk

http://m.countdown.tfl.gov.uk

http://accessible.countdown.tfl.gov.uk

Instead, you’ll be able to check for live bus information on the TfL home page, using the new favourites feature to get live arrivals for your stops.

Save your favourite bus stops in the 4 steps shown here: 1) Find a bus stop 2) Add it to your favourites 3) Select bus routes 4) Get live arrivals
