In December TFL started running the new trains on the Reading Paddington route as part of the Elizabeth line and of course the Cross Rail project which is great. In January the passengers can also pay using the contact less not oyster though.
Yesterday I went to Waterloo and it costed me £25 from Burnham. I paid by just touching in and out at all the stations. I felt like I am traveling in the tube from Burnham to Paddington.
Overall I am happy and I am sure many people will be happy with this.
