Answer for Oyster online accounts

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written response received on 1 July 2013.

Some 6 million Oyster cards are used in a typical month. This figure excludes concessionary passes.

TfL's on-going promotions to encourage customers to register on-line include: posters at stations and bus stops; an explanatory video available through the TfL web-site, You Tube, Facebook and Twitter; and a new introductory page on the TfL web-site.

It is of course a customer's choice whether or not to register their Oyster card.
