London Oyster cards can be used on all buses, trams, Tube, DLR and London Overground services, and nearly all National Rail services.
Oyster is an electronic contactless smartcard ticket. Simply touch your card on the yellow reader to get through the Tube gates or board other London public transport services. It doesn’t even need to be removed from your purse or wallet to work. A refundable deposit of £5 is required to obtain an Oyster card.
