I used my card to tap in and tap out of some stations today. I did this the other day too. The “Active card check. TfL journey charges appear in your feed the following day.” message was useful the first time I did this earlier this month. It feels like something’s missing.
I’d like to see something that tells me I have a pending TfL transaction on the day I tapped in. Here’s an idea:
- A person taps in at least once
- An entry appears immediately in TODAY. Something like: “Transport for London Estimate”
- An estimate of the transaction is displayed – calculated based on previous TfL transactions for the last week – in some colour that indicates it doesn’t count towards the spent today total
- The next day the entry disappears and the actual “Transport for London” entry is available
I’d find this useful, would you? What do you think?
