Say goodbye to tram tickets as TfL prepares to go ‘cashless’

Inside Croydon

Get ready to say farewell to those sometimes baffling and idiosyncratic ticket machines which stand like sentinels on the platforms of every stop on the Croydon Tramlink network.

From early next year, Croydon’s trams are set to go cashless

Transport for London has begun an eight-week public consultation on plans to make trams in London “cashless”.

Which everyone should, by now, realise that that means that TfL is intent on making the Croydon tram network cashless, and getting rid of ticket machines.

Of course, essentially, the tram network has been cashless since Day One, with no conductors on board to sell tickets, and drivers never being expected to collect fares or check passengers’ travel cards.

But according to an announcement from TfL this week, the cash ticket machines at the various trackside halts will be removed from the tram network within the next few months.
