Why do I need an Oyster Card?

If you have an Oyster Photocard you can travel free on the Tube, DLR, London Overground and some National Rail services. You will not however need an Oyster Photocard if you want to travel free on buses or trams or if you are accompanied by a paying adult on some services.

Am I eligible?

You will be eligible if you are 5 to 10 years old and live in London. If you live outside of London you will need to apply for a non-resident card.

How do I apply?
