Transport for London (TfL) have launched a consultation to seek customers' views on ending cash fare payments on the capital's buses.
According to the company's figures:
- Fewer than 1% of bus fares are now paid in cash
- Oyster pay as you go and contactless payment cards offer cheaper fares - currently paying £1 less than cash fare
- Faster boarding times and savings generated for reinvestment in the transport network
