Oyster Pay As You Go (PAYG)
PAYG is valid on all our services within London Zones 1-6, allowing you to pay for only the journeys you make on National Rail, London Overground, the Underground, Buses, Docklands Light Railway and Tramlink services.
It’s easy to use – just top the card up with credit and you are ready to travel! Any credit you have left over will be left on your card until your next trip.
Just remember to touch you card on the yellow Oyster validators at the start and end of your journey to ensure you pay the correct fare. Validators can be found on ticket gates or at the entrance/exit to the station or platform (if you are travelling on Tramlink or a bus, you only need to touch in at the start of the journey).
You can check the cost of your PAYG journey by using Transport for London’s fare checker.
