TfL has made improvements to Oyster.

Passengers who top up their pay as you go credit or buy Travelcards using Oyster online can now collect their purchase from any Tube or rail station, tram stop or River Bus pier when they touch in, rather than having to nominate a station when they make the purchase.

The upgrade has also significantly reduced the time it takes for the product to be ready to collect – from up to 24 hours to just 30 minutes.

The new TfL app is expected to launch this month.
