TfL info improvements with check in/out locations and times

Currently
Downloading CSVs of travel from the TFL website (https://contactless.tfl.gov.uk/) as shown below:
exporting_tfl

This is then integrated with the receipt API, as shown in https://github.com/monzo/reference-receipts-app

The code can be found in Developers group: https://community.monzo.com/t/tfl-receipts-importer/63639

In future
Integrate directly with TFL API. They detailed this in their blog post (https://blog.tfl.gov.uk/2017/09/15/how-we-built-the-tfl-customer-api/)
I don’t currently have time to work this out, but it seems like @gary has done this previously.

When finished, it should be a fairly clean setup process - authenticate with :monzo: then authenticate with TFL. The rest should happen in the background.
Ideally - this could provide the information in real time using the TFL API.

In future future
(With user permission), :monzo: could share card details directly with TFL (as is already needed when signing up for https://contactless.tfl.gov.uk/). This skips all the hassle and would let the user integrate the two directly in app.
