SOUTH Western Railway (SWR) has launched Apple Pay on its app and website.

Customers using an apple device such as an iPad or iPhone can use the feature through the SWR app or SWR website when purchasing a ticket.

Peter Williams, commercial director for SWR, said: “Using our app or our website has always been the easiest way to buy train tickets.

“We’re constantly looking at new technology to make buying tickets even easier for our customers and this new feature will do just that.”

It allows customers to buy a ticket without having to enter details such as card number and billing address every time they purchase a ticket.

Using the app also allows customers to use e-tickets which can be saved directly onto a phone.
