Your child needs a valid Oyster photocard to get free travel on buses and trams, to get Travelcard season tickets and pay as you go at child rate.
If your child is over 10 years and 11 months and under 16 on 31 August, they wil need an Oyster photocard to travel. If your child was 16 after this date, they are still eligible to apply for this photocard, despite the name of it.
They can get:
- free travel at any time on buses and trams; and
- child fares on Tube, DLR, London Overground and some National Rail services.
