Bus-hopping commuters in central London will no longer be able to pay for their fares with notes and coins from the summer, as Transport for London announces plans to ditch cash in favour of Oyster cards and bank debit and credit cards.
This is great. Nondigital payments belong to the past.
I'm with Bo here. Hong Kong scrapped cash more than 10 years ago, it is about time London buses evolved into the present. Now if only we can get the NYC subways to take the step
Ditto the Trams in Helsinki. You do get the option to pay by SMS however...
This is a good milestone, well done. I hope everything is in place for tourists that are mostly cash traverlers.
