Fantastic news.

With restrictions hopefully beginning to ease over the next couple of weeks we’ll all be getting out and about a lot more.

This will also mean that we’ll be using public transport a lot more so iPhone users will be delighted to know that they can finally download the Leap card top-up app to their phone.

The National Transport Authority announced this week that the Leap Top-Up App will be available on the Apple App Store, letting TFI Leap Card users with Apple devices check their balance, top-up on the go and collect pre-purchased tickets, including TaxSaver tickets.

Leap Card users with iPhone 7 or newer can now download the Leap Top-Up App from the Apple App Store and will no longer have to detour to a shop or ticket machine to load credit or ticket products bought earlier online.

Speaking about the new Leap card app for iPhone Chief Executive Officer of the National Transport Authority, Anne Graham said:

“It has always been our ambition to make the TFI Leap Card Top-Up App available to a wider cohort of public transport users. I am delighted that we are now in a position to expand this service to Apple devices.

In light of Covid-19, the ability to top-up from anywhere at any time from the comfort of your own home, will be a welcomed function for public transport user across the TFI network.

Paying for your fare using the TFI Leap Card continues to be the safest way to complete your journey as restrictions are eased.

We expect that the Apple app will be just as popular as the Android app. At the moment Android top-ups account for 30% of all TFI Leap Card top-ups.”

The Leap card top-up app is now available to download from the Apple App Store.
