I vaguely remember using an "Oyster card" somewhere other than London. But perhaps I am misremembering. Is there another place that uses that term for transit?

1 Answer 1


A Google search for "Oyster Card" excluding "London" suggests there is no such place.

What you remember is possibly Hong Kong's Octopus card, whose success later inspired the Oyster card.

  • Or the Dutch OV kaart, (OV pass) which is a later version and for all public transport in the country.

  • Damn. What about vegetarian cards, then?

  • Well, it wasn't the first time I was in London. So it was probably London. Last time I was in Hong Kong was in the 1970s. I don't think they were using RFID then.
