Epsom & Ewell MP Chris Grayling has just sent the following email related to the new electronic ticketing system. 

“There has been a little bit of confusion locally about what Southern and South West Trains are planning for the new electronic ticketing system that will be introduced locally in the next few weeks. 

I spoke to Southern again on Friday and they have confirmed that our area will be one of the first to have the new system. Initially the new smart cards will just contain season ticket information, but over the next few months they will be converted to be able to contain credits in the way an Oyster Card does. 

By the middle of next year they expect the cards to be useable across the London transport system. 

I am still working to get the Department for Transport to include Epsom in zone 6 at the next franchise renewal at the latest.”
