You can save 30% on Travelcards and Bus & Tram Passes with our 18+ Student Oyster photocard. You can also use this Oyster card to pay as you go but you won't receive the 30% discount.
If you live near your school, college or university, or only make a few journeys, it could be cheaper to travel using pay as you go, instead of travelling with a discounted Travelcard or Bus & Tram Pass.
Travelling off-peak using pay as you go can be cheaper. Start your journey before 06:30, between 09:30 and 15:59, or after 19:00 on weekdays. Or, travel anytime on weekends and bank holidays. Our Night Tube and London Overground Night Services are also off-peak.
Make as many journeys as you like in one day using your 18+ Student Oyster photocard, standard adult Oyster card or contactless (card or device) and we'll cap your fare. This means you won't pay more than £6.80 or £4.50 (with a 16-25 Railcard discount).
Our Hopper fare lets you make unlimited bus or tram journeys in one hour, for £1.50 using pay as you go.
Our steps to help you plan your journey:
Minicabs must be booked with a licensed minicab company, via app, online, phone or in a minicab office. Always check your booking confirmation. If the driver or car isn't the same, don't get in - it isn't safe.
Only black taxis (the ones with the orange 'taxi' lights) can be hailed off the street or from one of 600 taxi ranks across London. They can also be booked by phone or app. Every taxi has a card machine, so if you don't have cash, you can pay using credit, debit or contactless.
Report unwanted sexual behaviour offences, such as groping or indecent acts, to the police by dialling 999 if it's an emergency - otherwise call 101.
Report any inappropriate driver behaviour, such as comments that make you feel uncomfortable, to TfL by calling 0343 222 4000 (Monday-Friday, 08:00-18:00) or online.

You can also plan your journey to see walking routes.
