Question

I note that the Hong Kong company MTR has been confirmed as the Crossrail Operator for the Liverpool Street to Shenfield service. Can you confirm to my constituents and other travellers that integrated Oyster fares will apply on this service?

Yes, integrated Oyster fares will apply on the Liverpool Street to Shenfield service from 31 May 2015. The appointment of MTR has no bearing on the fares structure, as this is decided by Transport for London and not the operator. Crossrail will be fully integrated as part of the TfL network and the ticketing range will include Oyster Cards and contactless payment.  Travelcards, Freedom Passes and Zip cards will also be valid on Crossrail services.
