Oyster on Southern services
Using Oyster on Southern services is simple. Just touch in on the yellow card reader at the start of your journey, and touch out at the end. The fare is automatically deducted from your card.
You can use Oyster on all Southern trains within the London Fare Zones (zones 1-6) – as well as on buses, Tubes, Trams, the Docklands Light Railway, London Overground and most National Rail services in London.
Buying and topping up your Oyster card at a Southern station
You can buy your Oyster card at East Croydon and London Victoria. Other Southern stations within zones 1-6 also have limited stocks of Oyster cards.
Of course you can also buy your card at:
- Any London Underground station
- Any Oyster Ticket Stop
- London Overground ticket offices
- Online at tfl.gov.uk/oyster
You can top up your pay as you go Oyster card at any Southern self-service ticket machine in the London Fare Zones, or at Gatwick Airport.
