Buying a Ticket
Oyster is a plastic smartcard you can use instead of paper tickets. You can put your Travelcard, Bus & Tram Pass, or pay as you go credit on it, which you use up as you travel. Using an Oyster card tends to be cheaper than paying by cash for a flat fare single ticket.
You can buy your Oyster card on-line via the TFL website, at a station, or from the shop "AM 2 PM", at 38 the High Street, Ruislip.
