Changes to ticket office hours
This is to reflect the rapidly changing way that customers pay for their travel as they embrace new technology, including contactless cards and mobile devices.
Today, fewer than 2% of London Overground journeys involve a visit to a London Overground ticket office, and an increasing number of customers choose to top up their Oyster card online or use contactless payment. Contactless, Oyster and mobile payments offer easy and convenient payment options and value for money through capping.
Our busiest ticket offices' hours will remain unchanged, but at many stations ticket offices will open during the morning peak (07:30 - 10:00) when they are most used.
To see the new hours for London Overground stations with changes and the date from which the new times will apply, check the table.
If your station is not listed, its ticket office hours are not changing.
