Hey Guys

not sure if this is new as just noticed on my amex account , if your AMEX card has a contact less payment symbol then you can now use it as a PAYG oyster instead of cash fare

Link has more information

"You can now pay for your bus travel in the capital using a contactless American Express Card. When you travel by bus, simply touch your contactless American Express Card to the reader and go. No more fumbling for change or queuing for tickets. Just touch and go."

I do sometimes run out of payg balance and often shell out cash fare in a hurry this should save some money :-)

*Note: for example, you'll only be charged a single fare of £1.40 instead of £2.40. Oyster Daily Price Capping does not apply

Any contactless card can do this. It has been advertised for a long time.

it's not only for amex, but for all touch less cards. it is useful, but you don't have the daily caps feature.

Just use your AMEX to auto top up your Oyster card.

Just buses or underground too?

says buses , not sure though

On your bike!!!!

Yes just buses but tfl plan to launch it on underground too soon as they want to close all ticket offices.

They are running a trial on the underground but you need to apply for that and wait 2+ weeks.

Where can this be used?

I don't get the deal. Credit and debit cards have been accepted on the buses for about a year now...

Less THAN not less then
