To be eligible, you must have a MasterCard added to your Apple Pay Wallet on your iOS device. Then, all you need to do is touch in and out with your NFC-equipped iPhone or Apple Watch on February 29th, March 8th and March 15th to escape the maximum £28.10 charge.

How to pay on TfL using your MasterCard with Apple Pay:

  1. Prior to boarding a bus or approaching a gate double-click the Home button of iPhone, when iPhone is locked.
  2. Select your MasterCard and place your finger on Touch ID until you see “Hold near Reader to pay” on the display.
  3. Touch the top of iPhone near the yellow card reader within one minute of completing “Step 2” listed above.
  4. You will see “Done” on the display, feel a brief vibration, and hear a beep, letting you know payment has been sent. A green light will also be displayed on the card reader.
