Contactless Expansion to High Wycombe

Considering that we are in the middle of a general election campaign and that this project (Oval) is being sponsored by the Department for Transport, I was quite surprised to see that six new stations joined the contactless PAYG system yesterday. The six stations are: Beaconsfield, Denham, Denham Golf Club, Gerrards Cross, High Wycombe and Seer Green & Jordans.

Single fares are priced by Chiltern Railways and daily, off-peak and weekly caps are set at the same as the relevant travelcard price from zone 1. The immediate benefit for commuters who would usually buy a weekly travelcard is that they can now just travel and not worry whether they will make enough journeys to justify buying the travelcard in advance.

I’ve activated these six new stations in the fare finder which shows fares and caps (if available). The time to complete journey information will be added once I have it.

  1. I’ve found an anomaly – High Wycombe to Greenford is only priced via Z1, whereas the next stations further from Wycombe (South Greenford and Perivale) are not and thus have a fare that is very much cheaper than the ‘via London Terminal’ one.
