The Hull-based provider of identification solutions for transport, e-ID, traceability and brand protection, has secured a new contract to manufacture Oyster Cards. The £2.2m contract was awarded by Transport for London (TfL), the government body responsible for the transport system in Greater London and will see the business continue to produce the iconic smart cards throughout 2018.
Oyster cards are rechargeable smart cards used to easily pay for journeys on bus, tube, tram, DLR, London Overground, TfL rail, river bus and most National Rail services throughout the City.
Millions of journeys are made daily using the Oyster Card, making it one of the preferred options for anyone wishing to access public transport in the capital. The British company Paragon ID is one of few ITSO certified smart ticketing specialists in the country with manufacturing facilities in the UK and across Europe.
