Any useful Oyster card FAQs?
In message . com, Matt
I don't know if you can check your usage online, but you
can ask for a printout from any London Underground ticket
Thanks. I assumed, from the sketchy details in the leaflet, that this
could be done on-line. I can't see why not, since it clearly says that
you can check your personal details on-line.
what if I touch in at a Zone 1 station when my Oystercard
has only a couple of pounds of credit left, but travel to a
zone where the fare would have been more than that -
can I top up at the destination or not).
The system will debit the correct amount from your card
(giving you a slightly negative balance), and then allow
you out of the automatic gates.
Well that's also a surprise - and seems like a loophole. On further
reflection I guess that you have your original £3 deposited with them,
and the excess fare is always below that, so getting a series of Oyster
cards to take long journeys at the Zone 1 rate wouldn't gain you
Is this stuff documented anywhere - I was only asking naive questions
because I couldn't find it on the LT/TFL sites?
