Thames River Bus Tickets and Timetables
Generally, you need to get a ticket from a pier ticket office before boarding a boat. However, you can buy your ticket on board.
Travelcard holders can get discounts on many standard riverboat routes, and pay-as-you-go Oyster cards are accepted on Thames Clippers, giving you a 10% discount on most single journeys. A Thames Clippers River Roamer (hop-on hop-off day ticket) is also available. Download your free River Bus Services and River Tours Services guides from Transport for London.
All London's piers are wheelchair accessible. Most river buses are accessible, and newer river craft have dedicated wheelchair spaces. You should check with individual service operators about the level of accessibility on their boats.
Staff are always on hand to offer help with boarding and disembarking from river craft. However, it is advisable for people with mobility impairments who are travelling as a group to provide advance notice to the operator concerned, to ensure a smooth journey.
