TfL have finally launched a handy new app to make topping up your Oyster just that little bit easier.
We knew TfL had an app in the works, but if you were dreaming of next-level journey planning, live departure times and all the rest, you’ll need to curb your enthusiasm. Instead they’ve started with something much simpler: an easier online method of topping up our Oysters.
Small but perfectly formed, the new TfL Oyster app (free for iOS and Android) looks slicker than a City worker.
With the app, you’ll be able to top up your Oyster card with PAYG credit or travelcards. That means no waiting around at those kiosks where nobody knows what they’re doing, or only finding out your card has a negative balance when you hit the gateline at rush hour.
You’ll also be able to see where you’ve been travelling, how much it cost you, and when your balance is running low or your Travelcard is about to expire. Future plans should see the ability to manage your contactless cards in one place and topping up your card whilst on the bus.
