Commuting in the capital is about to cost less with Uber Boat by Thames Clippers, London’s River Bus, introducing a new ‘Commuter AM’ ticket that offers a 25 per cent saving compared to touching in and out with an Oyster or Contactless card. Tickets can now be booked through the Thames Clippers Tickets app.

The new ticket trial gives flexibility and provides savings to Londoners’ morning commute. Available to purchase in advance or on-the-go, the Commuter AM ticket is valid for use on any Uber Boat by Thames Clippers service Monday to Friday between 06:30am and 09:30am.

Alongside the new ticket, Uber Boat by Thames Clippers’ weekly, monthly and annual season tickets continue to offer regular River Bus passengers a saving of up to 74 per cent*. For those travelling with an annual season ticket, a single journey can work out as little as £1.61**.
