If an apprentice or student studying in London seeks discounted pay as you go fares on Transport for London (TfL) services, what options are available to them?

Students and apprentices studying in London can buy a 16-25 or 26-30 Railcard and have the Railcard discount set on an Oyster card or Oyster photocard. The discount gives one-third off pay as you go off-peak fares on Tube, DLR, London Overground, Elizabeth line and most National Rail services in London.

Those eligible for an 18+ Student or Apprentice Oyster photocard can also get 30 per cent off Travelcard and Bus & Tram Pass season tickets. Further information on these concessions is available on the Transport for London website:
