Pay as you go with Oyster or contactless

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 26% 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.

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 20% cheaper than paying as you go using Oyster or contactless payment cards.

For instance, when you purchase a Flex 20 ticket carnet you’re actually buying 20 journeys for the price of 16!

Go unlimited for the day with a River Roamer

Planning to make multiple journeys in one day? Travel pier to pier across London with a River Roamer and hop-on, hop-off the River Bus all day.

Adult River Roamers are valid across all River Zones and cost £17.80 for one day’s unlimited travel when purchased online. That's 10% cheaper than buying a paper River Roamer ticket directly at the pier.

If you would like to make unlimited use of our services for multiple days, consider a Season Ticket.
