Apple Pay Users Get Free London Underground Tube Travel Next Monday

By Gerald Lynch on at

There's a certain degree of irony in giving those with iPhones and Apple Watches free travel – among the most expensive of consumer tech items, surely their owners don't need so much financial support? What about those still rocking a Nokia brick? Still, if you've got an Apple Pay-supported device and are a Mastercard customer, you can get free public transport across London next Monday, February 29th.

Whether you're taking the tube, bus, tram or DLR, all Transport for London networks should accept your Apple Pay payments without charge, with the cost of fares refunded up to a limit of £28.10.

It's the third time that Mastercard has pushed the promotion, and it won't be the last either – the scheme will run twice more through March, offering Mastercard members of the Apple fan club free travel on Monday March 7th and Monday March 14th, too.
