Leap Top-Up App harnesses Near Field Communication technology to improve customer convenience

New! Use your mobile phone to:

• top-up your Leap Card on the spot
• check your Leap Card balance
• collect tickets, including TaxSaver

From today (January 25), Leap Card users with Near Field Communications (NFC)-enabled Android phones can check their card balance and instantly top-up their card with travel credit or collect pre-purchased tickets, including TaxSaver tickets, onto their Leap Card – all by touching their card against their phones.  The innovative Leap Top-Up App uses NFC technology to communicate directly between the phone and the Leap Card.

This new enhancement will be particularly useful to Leap Card users who most regularly travel by bus as, until now, they have had to detour to a shop to upload credit or ticket products bought earlier online.

So, any Leap Card holder with an NFC-enabled Android smartphone which runs version 4.4 KitKat or later and with a Google Play account can download the Leap Top-Up App, and start using this convenient new feature – immediately.  In addition, people with the App on their phones can check a friend’s Leap Card Balance for them, allow them to collect a ticket or pay for a friend’s Leap Card top-up, instantly, and in their own time.
