Tickets for commuters - Uber Boat by Thames Clippers

Pay as you go

Pay for single journeys with contactless or Oyster card for pay as you go. You can also buy tickets in advance through our website, app and the Uber app. It’s convenient and up to 24% cheaper than buying a paper ticket at the pier.

Oyster readers are located next to the boarding point on the pier. When instructed to do so by a member of staff, touch in with your Oyster or contactless payment card and touch out when you disembark, including at interchanges, to ensure you pay the correct fare.

If your Oyster card is linked to a Transport for London (TfL) Travelcard, you will automatically receive ⅓ off. If you have a paper Travelcard, you can still receive the discount by getting your tickets online, or via the Thames Clippers Tickets or Uber apps.

Season tickets for daily commuters

If you plan to use our services every day, season tickets offer you the best value for money.

You can buy season tickets for weekly, monthly or annual unlimited travel and save up to 75%* compared to making two journeys per day and paying as you go with an Oyster/ contactless payment card. This can work out as little as £1.61** per journey with our annual option.

And by committing to an annual rather than buying monthly season tickets, over a 12-month period this could effectively save you the cost of more than two months’ travel***

  • 50% off for children aged 5-15 and concession pass holders.
Café Bar discount - Get 15% off all food and drink on board

Flexible carnets to save on less-frequent travel

If you are a regular user of our services but don’t always need to commute by River Bus, you can still save money by purchasing a Ticket Carnet through our app.

Flexible carnets allow you to make 4 or 6 journeys over one week, or 10 or 20 journeys over three months. Buying a carnet is up to 25% cheaper than paying as you go using Oyster or contactless payment cards.
