Whitton commuters WILL be able to top up Oyster cards

It would appear that after pressure from the Government South West Trains have finally given in and agreed to allow commuters to top-up their oyster cards.

South West Trains had, until last week, been the only rail operator to refuse to operate Oyster operable ticket machines. This meant that those commuters travelling from Whitton travelling into central London would have to top up their cards before they travelled or remember to do so before they left the city.

The changes will now allow commuters to top-up at Whitton station from May next year making journeys into London much simpler and easier. 

SWT managing director Andy Pitt said: “We have been committed to finding a solution to make it possible for passengers to also top up their Oyster cards at our stations.”
