TFL App - A step in the right direction

Today’s Evening Standard mentions TFL finally have an app.

Contactless payment history is not until next year, so still miles behind @gary’s fantastic app, but hopefully a step in the right direction towards a Monzo/TFL integration after the full launch of current accounts - with TFL starting to recognise contactless/mobile use.

TfL App :v:t3:this in conjunction with Monzo notification will address some of the problems seen in previous conversations here. Though as the article notes, the 30 min processing time is not what people are used to. Especially not Monzo :innocent:

That’s 30 mins to top up, not 30 mins for a notification unfortunately.

Still progress that TFL have an app though!

From an internal railway brief this was supposed to be released on 5th July. So it appears there must have been some problems…



I assume it’s under a large load having just been released… Otherwise it’s a terrible app… Doesn’t remember your login… Doesn’t show your card… Wont let you add a card (as it already exists)… That’s what’s happening to me :wink:

If you have 1st gen card like me then it won’t work with new app.Oyster

The way my copy is behaving, if you have one first generation card, the app won’t display details associated with any cards at all :frowning:

In the meantime, you could always use this app instead :slight_smile:


I do use it, i downloaded it as soon as it was mentioned.

It’s quite good tbh
