To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what recent steps his Department has taken to expand the Oyster card system beyond London.
Answer (Andrew Jones)
We have invested £80m so that passengers have a smart option for almost all journeys across the network by the end of the year; this is in addition to our £150 million commitment to smart ticketing in the North. Our goal is to ensure that across regional and urban commuter areas smart ticketing is able to deliver the kind of pay as you go structure used in London.
