The end of the £3 depositJun 13, 2011
It seems that the machines which sell Oyster cards for £5 including £2 PAYG credit have all but been withdrawn. At London Bridge the machine has an “Out of Use” sticker over the money slot. I enquired with some contacts who confirmed that they are being withdrawn at the moment. Almost all central London machines have been removed or taken out of service and they will be gone completely by the end of July.
