I had been expecting Oyster Cards to arrive in Epsom in September 2015, as told to me by Govia Thameslink, the company that runs the station. Sadly, this didn’t happen – and I am not best pleased. The delay has arisen from complications in introducing Oyster elsewhere on the network which are now being overcome though I am unhappy that stations on the Gatwick route have been updated before us in Epsom. I have been pressing the Department for Transport hard on all this and they have confirmed that they, as well as Govia Thameslink and Transport for London are all working to bring Oyster to Epsom as soon as is practical. I hope to have more news soon – but my understanding is that Oyster is definitely going ahead.
