The Oyster Card is the official Department for London transport payments card, facilitating all discounts, concessions and passes inside one convenient piece of plastic.
Designed to maximise the efficiency of consumer transport within London’s highly popular train networks, the Oyster Card is a reusable card attached to a traveller’s online account. Although coming under fire for its perceived potential for fraud (others can lend and use a card’s passes with little oversight) the benefits of the initiative are seen to outweigh the costs of exploitation.
Anticipated to grow in importance as the London Tube replaces its drivers with robots, the Oyster Card’s relevance is expected to grow in coming years.
