The One Nation One Card is modeled on the Oyster Card of London. It is a London-type one card for all transport across India.
A majority of Londoners use the Oyster Card for public transport payments. The Oyster Card is used for easy payment on London’s public transport network. It can be used on buses, trams, the tubes (London Underground Rapid Transport System) and riverboat services.
Regular commuters can purchase a season ticket with Oyster Cards with a Pay as You Go Style card with the ability to top up payments, online or even payment within stations. You can even recharge at shops. Oyster Cards can be linked to bank account with auto-top up once it reaches a certain amount. (This could be say less than £5 remaining.)
You just present the card at the Oyster Pad. The fare is deducted from the balance. Oyster Card is useful at buses and railways. You don’t have to stand in queues or wait for change. There’s no requirement for payment desks and machines, cutting costs. Oyster fares are cheaper than regular travel tickets, incentivizing people to make use of them.
Unless you plan to make a single journey on public transport, it’s wise to opt for Oyster Card. A single underground journey in the center of London by paying in cash is double the price of same fare with Oyster Card.
Oyster Card is a permanent reusable electronic ticket. You have to top up with cash to pay fares. It can be topped up at ticket machines. All you must do is register the card. Fare is taken from the Oyster Card as this is a prepaid card. This is Pay as you Go.
You can use Oyster Cards at London Underground Network, London red local bus, Railway Network in Greater London, Heathrow Express, Gatwick Express, Thameslink and Southern Trains services between London and Gatwick Airport.
Oyster Cards are of two types. You have the standard Oyster Card if you buy outside London and the visitor’s oyster card. It’s a common misconception that fares are different if you use the standard Oyster Card and the Visitor Oyster. This is not true.
With a visitor oyster card you pay an activation fee of £5 which is non-refundable. For Standard Oyster Card you have to pay a deposit of £5 which is refunded when you surrender the Oyster Card.
