Concessionary fares: older customers
There are a number of options that those aged 60 or over can take to reduce the cost of travel, including:
- those with an Older Person’s Freedom Pass can travel free on the TfL network after 09:00 on weekdays (following temporary changes announced in June 2020 in response to the coronavirus pandemic) and at any time on weekends and bank holidays.
- The Hopper fare gives unlimited journeys for £1.65, made within one hour of first touching in.
- a senior railcard discount set on an Oyster card gives a third off pay as you go off-peak fares.
- those claiming certain benefits can get a 50 per cent discount on bus and tram pay as you go fares and season tickets.
- those with a Disabled Person’s Freedom Pass can travel free at any time on the TfL network, and on most National Rail services in London after 09:30 on weekdays and at any time on weekends and bank holidays.
Walking and cycling are also great options on shorter journeys for those who are able to.
Our walking Tube map shows how long it takes to walk between Tube stations, and our expanded cycle hire scheme now also has 500 e-bikes for hire across 800 docking stations.
