Techno-savvy commuters can now store their train tickets for the Stansted Express in their phone.

Tickets bought online will go straight to Apple Wallet, so travellers do not have to print off paper versions before getting to the station.

A barcode is scanned or shown at the gates to allow them through the barriers.

Apple Wallet is an app for iPhone which stores important documents, such as event tickets, boarding passes, coupons, and on later i0s it stores card information through Apple Pay.

Twenty per cent of customers on Stanstedexpress.com also now use Paypal to pay for their tickets.

Eleni Jordan, head of sales at Stansted Express, said: “At Stansted Express we are always looking to improve the customer experience and make the online booking process as quick, simple and convenient as possible. Both these two new functions will help the customer speed through the online process.”

According to the operator, it is the fastest way to travel between central London and Stansted Airport.
