Thought I'd ask my UK friends about this ...
I'll be in London in 2 weeks, and thinking of getting an Oystercard for my travels around town. Just wondering what the difference is between the blue card, and a vistor
The website gives info on how to purchase one, but it's pretty vague.
(Maybe I'm not looking in the right area ??
Also, why the distinction between the two parties? ... resident and visitor?
Everyone knows that it's easy to get a MetroCard in NY. Just put money in the machine, and hop on your train. No asking if you're a local, or passing thru town.
I've been scratchin my head over this for the longest time, and hope someone could enlighten me.
