Pink card reader

If you change trains during a journey at one of the stations listed below, you should touch your card on a pink card reader to pay the right fare.

There are pink card readers on, or in between, London Overground platforms at:

  • Blackhorse Road
  • Canada Water
  • Clapham Junction
  • Gospel Oak
  • Gunnersbury
  • Hackney Central/Hackney Downs
  • Highbury & Islington
  • Kensington (Olympia)
  • Richmond
  • Stratford
  • Surrey Quays
  • West Brompton
  • Whitechapel
  • Willesden Junction

There are pink card readers on the Tube platforms at:

  • Rayners Lane
  • Wimbledon

If you don't touch on a pink card reader, you could pay a higher fare. For example, you might pay for a journey that includes Zone 1, even if you haven't travelled through it.

If there isn't a pink card reader where you change trains, it means you don't need to use one.

To see whether you need to touch on a pink card reader during your journey, or if you can take a cheaper route, use the single fare finder.
