BUY MY TICKET
If you intend to be a regular traveller on London Transport, We suggest you obtain an Oyster card, this is cheaper and easier to use, visit www.tfl.gov.uk/oyster for more details. I've even arranged for my card to be topped up automatically when the balance falls below a set level, so you don't even have to worry about how much money you have in it!
There are card readers in each Underground station and on the buses. These are a round attachment to the automatic and manual gates - you simply place the card (in its wallet) over the reader and hear a suitable beep whilst the gate opens for you. You must, however, remember to "swipe" your card at your destination as well, otherwise you'll be charged the maximum fare.
Note that there's free transfer between terminals.
There are two ticket machines between the gate line and lifts. We believe these are not accessible to blind/vision impaired people, however, staff at the gate line will help as necessary.
