costs me £8 at the mo to get into then travel around london... hopefully this will be cheaper.. will save a fortune
Good news. No more standing in line at the ticket machine behind some dork who keeps dropping his change.
Finally..... TFL suddenly realise it's 2009 and integrate the transport systems!

Just had a look at sample fares, I'm in Zone 2 so to get to London Terminals it's £3.30 at the moment for off-peak return. With Oyster, it's £1.70 single, So errr.... 10p more, but maybe that includes the usual January rises?
About time (Oyster machines have been sitting around waiting for endless months at National Rail stations), and a positive sign moving forward.

The sooner National Rail stops ripping often London commuters the better. BBC London mentioned that Oyster daily caps will apply, making it near impossible for National Rail to rort commuters as they do now.
Been using Oyster from Croydon to London for 3 months now - there is no saving, its the same price, its also a pain getting Oyster topped up before every journey, & I've been overcharged. So I've gone back to using paper tickets & will continue to do so until there's a saving. So much for all that investment, its just plain inconvenient to shuffle money from one card to another.
