London Transport Connections
We’re committed to encouraging customers to travel to and from our train stations by environmentally-friendly and sustainable means - particularly by bus, cycle, taxi and the London Underground. We’re working with local transport providers to offer you a wide range of great value integrated tickets for your train journey and onward travel, saving you time, money and hassle.
Travelcard Season Ticket
A Travelcard Season Ticket is valid for one or more London Fare zones. This can be used for travel between any National Rail station within the zones on dates for which the Oyster Travelcard is valid.
For travel outside of the Zones covered by your Travelcard, you can either use pay-as-you-go (if you’re travelling within the London Fare Zones) or you can buy a separate extension ticket. If you’re using a Travelcard and pay-as-you-go together you must always remember to touch in and touch out to make sure you pay the correct fare
Please note that First Great Western trains call at these stations in London Fare zones: Acton Main Line, Castle Bar Park, Drayton Green, Ealing Broadway, Greenford, Hanwell, Hayes & Harlington, Paddington, South Greenford, Southall, West Drayton and West Ealing.
Check our map of London fare zones.

Transport for London's Oyster Card is really useful when you’re travelling around London. An Oyster card is a plastic smartcard you can use instead of paper tickets. You can put Travelcards, Bus & Tram season tickets and pay as you go credit on it. It’s the cheapest way to pay for single journeys on bus, Tube, tram, DLR, London Overground and most National Rail services in London. Find out more on the Transport for London website.

From many stations, you are now able to buy a ticket that includes a journey on the London Underground in Zone 1, as part of your train ticket. Ask for a Zone 1 add-on, when buying your train ticket.
