Sorry for bumping an old thread (found this on Google!) and for a silly question, but...
Normally when I go to London I'll pay the £7.50 or whatever and get a little card and just use the tube everywhere. If I got an Oyster card, it charges for single journeys right? But does it cap at £7.50 or should I sometimes need to add things up and consider paying the £7.50 flat charge anyway?
Also, is stuff like buses and overground included in that £7.50? Longshot.
Oyster automatically works out the cheapest fare for all your journeys so you'll never pay more than the price of a Day Travelcard.

I will need a daily commute travel (except weekend) from Woolwich Dockyard (Zone 3) to Elephant and Castle (Zone 1) for at least three month (possible 6 months).
From the following Tube and Rail Networkhttp://www.tfl.gov.uk/assets/downloads/tube-dlr-trams-and-train-travelcard-zones-map.pdf
I have seen that there is a South-eastern Train Service from Woolwich Dockyard (Zone 3) to London Bridge and then Northern Line Tube to Elephant and Castle.
I am thinking of Buying Zone 1-3 monthly Travel Cards (in Oyster Card). According to this websitehttp://www.tfl.gov.uk/tickets/14416.aspx
It will cost me £123.70 per month.
I am looking for advice how I could reduce the cost of this daily commuting? Further info. I am not eligible for Young Rail Card.
It seems that in this forum there is not many discussion regarding London local transport. Is there any other discussion forum available ?
Thank you for your advice

A monthly season ticket from Woolwich Dockyard to Elephant & Castle can be had for £56.90.
As you can imagine, there are some restrictions at that price.
You cannot use London Underground trains.
You must travel via Nunhead (probably need to change trains there too).
The journey will take a little longer than your proposed route.
Information from the National Rail Enquiries Season Ticket Calculator.

The 53 bus with an Oyster card will be the cheapest if rather slow way of doing it - no changes, £1.30 a journey.
