I’ve been doing quite a bit of research in an attempt to fully understand the fares for the Gatwick extension of the Oyster system. The results are nearly ready for publication, but in the meantime I have come to the conclusion that the current Oyster system is full. What do I mean by this?
Swanley will accept Oyster and contactless from Wednesday 9th March 2016. Like Dartford it will be in zone 8 and use the fare scale. I have added Swanley to the Oyster Fare Finder.
