Cash can no longer be used on any of London’s buses.

As of today passengers will need a prepaid ticket or a contactless payment card to travel.

The cost-cutting measure could save Transport of London (TfL) £24million a year, it says.

Less than one per cent of all bus journeys are paid for with cash.

Mike Weston, TfL’s director of buses, said: ‘Removing cash from our bus network not only offers customers a quicker and more efficient bus service but it enables us to make savings of £24m a year which will be re-invested to further improve London’s transport network.’

The company added tourists will be largely unaffected.
