Streamlined for London

Paying for journeys on Transport for London is easier with Express Mode for Apple Pay. You no longer need to authenticate your payment with Face ID or Touch ID. Simply select a card for travel in Wallet. Then just tap your iPhone or Apple Watch on the yellow card reader and go.

All zones in Express Mode.

Enjoy Apple Pay across all TfL
services, including the Underground, buses and trams.

Ways to pay.

Express Mode uses your default card automatically. If you prefer, you can select a different one for TfL journeys in the Wallet app. Just remember to always tap in and out with the same device. And keep your plastic cards separate from your Apple devices, so only your chosen payment method is charged.

How to choose an Express
Travel Card

No power? No problem.

Whether you’re working overtime or staying out all night, Express Mode can still get you home. Keep travelling up to five hours after the red Power Reserve icon appears.⁠*

Keep journeys private.
And payments secure.

Apple never tracks your journey. And if you lose your iPhone or Apple Watch, you can lock your card remotely. Express Mode is just for TfL services — all other payments still need Face ID or Touch ID authentication.

Cashless made effortless.
