Southern takes ITSO ticketing to London Victoria

NEWLY-APPOINTED Transport Minister Baroness Kramer was on hand on 21 October to launch an industry first for Southern Railway. That was the day when Southern’s ITSO-compliant smartcard – the key - became live in London.

This involved the first step in the DfT- funded ITSO on Prestige project designed to upgrade Transport for London (TfL) ticketing systems around London to accept ITSO as well as Oyster cards, and has meant close partnership working between Southern, TfL and Cubic Transportation Systems.

Southern’s smartcard can now be used by point-to-point season ticket holders to travel to East Croydon, Clapham Junction and London Victoria from Southern stations south of Gatwick Airport.

In the months ahead, other products including Travelcards and single and return tickets to London terminals will be introduced.
