I'm considering travelling to Amersham on Saturday. If I miss the last direct return train (1809) and have to take the replacement bus to Gerrards Cross, will it be possible to still pay using Oyster or Contactless? Touching in at Amersham would be possible, but will I be allowed into Gerrards Cross with only a credit card?

It certainly has been possible in the past during planned Engineering Work, though you'd need to ask a member of staff to let you through the gates at Gerrards Cross and ensure you tap in/out at Amersham.

It wouldn't hurt to ask Chiltern on Twitter though, just in case.

Cheers!

I tried asking the chatbot on Chiltern's website but the staff have gone home.

@CyrusWuff is entirely correct. There will be no problem accessing the platforms at Gerrards Cross for your return journey - Touching in at Amersham and out at Marylebone are key.

Thanks everyone. I managed to finish early enough to get a direct train so the issue didn't arise.
