London: Oyster Card to Cover all Rail Lines

Jump to last reply

from the New Year i heard that now all national rail lines that serve as commuter rail lines within the confines of the TfL's Oyster Card will now be fully equipped to accept the Oyster Card - greatly simplifying travel for those depending on national rail lines to get into central London.

Previously only some had the necessary equipment to scan Oyster Cards and thus you had to by a separate ticket.

And with the several more lines apparently this is presenting Tfl (Transport for London, runners of the buses and the Tube) is hard pressed to create a simply enough system map that can easily show all the new lines the Oyster Card can be used on.

And apparently there is some talk of reorganizing the current zones of the Oyster Card and TfL in light of adding all the rail lines.

And if you do not know about the Oyster Card in general and will be staying in London more than a day or so just know that buying and always using an Oyster Card will get you the best fare - a brainless thing to do - buy an Oyster Card upon arrival and refund what remains on it on the way out - or just keep it for future travelers or even to give to friends heading to London.
