Thousands of Tube passengers today began using their bank and credit cards to pay for tube trips.

The move is part of a process that transport chiefs hope will one day mean the end of the Oyster.

Transport for London (TfL) said contactless payments using a debit or credit card will mean 'easier and more convenient journeys' for millions of customers, who'll benefit from things like fares caps.

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said: "Londoners and visitors to our great city can now get from A to B with a simple flourish of a contactless payment card. This is a great leap forward for our transport network and a world first for a capital that's leading the way by using the latest technology to help people get around."

Contactless payments have been used on London buses since December 2012 and cash payments were abolished in July.
