Dear Mr Blackie

 

Our ref: FOI-1423-1819/GH

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 22
August 2018 asking for information about payment statistics.

 

Your request has been considered under the requirements of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 and our information access policy. I can confirm that
we do hold the information you require.

As previously, there are some limitations on the data we can access, and
some reports concerning payments by cash, card, cheque etc are no longer
available.

Also as previously, the focus here is not on transactions (since one
transaction could imply one journey, or 40 journeys, etc) but on total
journeys and total sales.

The following is an analysis of Pay As You Go journeys on TfL services in
the financial year April 2017 – March 2018. The proportion of journeys
using a Contactless card or device to pay at station gates, or readers on
buses, was about 43% averaged across the year but by the end of the year
it was nearer 50%.

Proportions 57.1% 38.4% 4.4% 100.0%

Secondly, an analysis gives an indication of the breakdown between cash
and card purchases. These are receipts (sales) at Underground stations,
including purchases of Travelcards as well as PAYG top-ups, and they will
also cover parts of journeys made on National Rail. However, note that
receipts from journeys using Contactless cards and mobiles (see above) are
excluded.

Proportions 19.7% 79.7% 0.6% 100.0%

 

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable
to access it for some reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached
information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

 

Yours sincerely

Thank you very much for your reply.

Could you possibly send this as a PDF? I want to make sure I don't misinterpret your tables.
Many thanks,
