Pink card readers
When to use the pink card readers
If you're using Oyster pay as you go and changing at one of the stations below. You still need to touch in and out on the yellow card readers.
To see whether the journey you want to make has a cheaper route use Single fare finder.
There are pink and yellow card readers at:
- Blackhorse Road
- Canada Water
- Gospel Oak
- Highbury & Islington
- Kensington (Olympia)
- Rayners Lane
- West Brompton
- Willesden Junction
What to do: Touch your Oyster card on the pink card reader when changing trains mid-journey. Touch in and out on the yellow readers as normal at the beginning and end of your journeys.
What happens: Oyster knows which route you've taken. It calculates the fare on that route. If you don't validate your route we can't charge you the right fare.
