16 and 17-year-olds in full-time education travel for free in London tram and buses

From September around 130,000 16 and 17-year-olds living in London in full-time education or unwaged training can apply for a 16 to 17-year-old Oyster photocard, offering them free travel on TfL bus and tram network and 50% discount on metro and Docklands Light Railway network.

This measure follows the abolition of fares on buses and trams for under-16s and for under-11s on the Tube (see EMTA News n°22) and aims at making public transport affordable and regularly used by young people. This policy is supported by 80% of Londoners.
