Manage your adult Oyster and contactless cards on the move with the app.

• Top up pay as you go credit
• Buy adult rate 7 Day, Monthly and Annual Travelcards, and Bus & Tram Passes
• View your Oyster card and contactless journey history
• Check contactless payments
• Check your pay as you go balance and see season tickets
• Check if you have any incomplete journeys
• Allow notifications when your pay as you go balance falls below a certain amount, or your Travelcard is about to expire

When you top up your credit or buy a Travelcard or Bus & Tram Pass, it will be available to collect after 30 minutes when you touch your Oyster card on a yellow card reader as part of a journey on any London bus, or at any Tube, DLR, London Overground, TfL Rail or National Rail station within the pay as you go area, tram stop or River Bus pier.

Keeping on top of your spend is easy; see the date, time and cost of your journeys from the last 8 weeks.

The TfL Oyster and contactless app will request access to your camera. This is so that you can scan your payment card. We will never store the scanned pictures. Alternatively you can enter the card details manually.

You can’t currently add Oyster photocards to this app.
You can’t currently buy discounted tickets through the app.

For security reasons the TfL Oyster and contactless app is not supported on jailbroken devices.

Simple app, needs Apple Pay

A simple app where you can check your balance, top up, see your journeys. Would be great if you could top up via Apple Pay rather than having to input your credit card. Anything beyond that, you’re better off logging onto the main Oyster site.

Don’t even download if non UK resident

In addition to the well published (on the reviews, not on the website) issues of refusing to accept non UK credit cards or even be accessible from outside the UK (the website doesn’t even tell you why just errors out of you try to login) it appears I can’t even login with my TfL contactless account to track. The website does it just fine so I’m assuming it’s being blocked here because of a US address (on the account, I am physically in the UK now and often). It does not, of course, give that as the error but since the website doesn’t (then works fine with a VPN) that is sadly not a surprise.

I find this app very useful

I live in the UK and I am on the American iTunes store. I think this app works best with these to factors.

It's simple, quick, fast and does everything that I need on a day to day level. Like top ups and travel cards.

Anything complex I go to the tfl site. Which is rare. Thanks Tfl. 👌🏻
