As part of getting ready to roll out prepay Oyster across the overground railway in London, the Association of Train Operating Companies has announced the purchased of 67 new ticket machines called FasTIS, enhanced to provide Oyster retailing capability, including for "pay as you go" ticket types.

The Contract, worth £2.1 million over 3 years, has been awarded to Cubic Transportation Systems' for ticket issuing systems that have been adapted to sell Oyster smartcard products, plus a hosted data management service and equipment maintenance.

The new machines include Oyster smartcard retailing capability, plus customer administration and support at national rail ticket offices.

They will be used at 25 joint stations where LUL and the overground railway share stations and ticketing systems. It will allow passengers to obtain pay as you go top-up and Travelcards on Oyster, buy new Oyster cards as well as retailing the whole range of national rail fares, including making reservations.

It will give passengers access to rail's comprehensive and multi-modal set of travel products - not currently available from LUL stations - and demonstrates active rail participation in Oyster smartcards.

Anthony Lain, Chief Executive of ATOC's Rail Settlement Plan said; "17% of rail journeys in London are already made using Oyster cards but we are keen to see Oyster extended more widely. This is a further step to showing train operators commitment to rollout smartcard technology on the railway."
