Following a summit at City Hall with the Mayor, TfL and the London TOCs a number of improvements to travel within London have been announced. The best one is that the Oyster Extension Permit will be killed off from 22nd May 2011, just over 16 months since it’s introduction. Other measures include a clearer map showing all Oyster rail services which will replace both the London Connections NR map and the current TfL Oyster map. It is hoped that the standardised version will help Londoners and visitors alike to navigate the city. There is also talk about extending the Oyster system further into the shires. The full press release can be read on the TfL website.
