I’ve just received an email from TfL about Oyster. I’m presuming it was sent because my card is registered. It’s a real shame that they couldn’t have sent a similar email in December 2009 alerting everyone to the new Oyster Extension Permits. This could have saved so many people from falling victim to those not-very-nice management people at South Eastern who are still imposing penalty fares at their London terminals. I reckon there will be quite a few people who will get this email and wonder waht OEPs were! Anyway, here it is for those who don’t get it themselves:
Dear Mr ****,
I am writing to let you know that from Sunday 22 May, Oyster Extension Permits will no longer be required.
In future, when you use a Travelcard and Oyster pay as you go together on National Rail services in Greater London, just touch in and touch out for every journey you make to ensure you pay the correct fare.
Please make sure you have sufficient pay as you go credit on your Oyster card before starting your journey.
