TRAIN UPGRADES: New payment method to be introduced at Gerrards Cross railway station

 Published on: 19th July 2023   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

The railway station in Gerrards Cross is to get tap-in tap-out payment as an option for passengers by the end of the year.

As part of a £20million government investment, the station is one of 53 in the South East to be upgraded to allow passengers to pay for their train tickets via contactless payment from a payment card or a smart device.

Other stations to be upgraded include Denham, Denham Golf Club, Cheddington, Bricket Wood and Hemel Hempstead.

The announcement means there will be more than 400 stations with tap-in tap-out as payment option, with many of the current ones existing in London and other parts of the South East.

The government hopes to eventually upgrade 200 stations across the region.

Rail Minister Huw Merriman said: “One of the best ways to get more people using our railways is to make journeys as simple, flexible and convenient as possible, and the government’s programme for rail reform prioritises exactly that.

“By removing the stress of finding the best deal in advance or having the right ticket ready to go at the barriers, the extension of tap-in tap-out ticketing is the next step of our plan for rail reform and we’re working towards pay-as-you-go being rolled out beyond the South East through the Midlands and up to the North.”
