One Day Bus & Tram Passes

A One Day Bus & Tram Pass allows you to travel as often as you like on buses and trams for the day it's valid. You can use it on all services in London that display this sign.

Pay as you go is always better value than buying a One Day Bus & Tram Pass.

Single and return tickets

You can buy paper single and return tickets for travel on Tube, DLR, London Overground, TfL Rail and most National Rail services from ticket machines.

You can't use cash to pay for your fare when you board a bus, from a roadside ticket machine, or at a tram stop. Instead of cash, you can pay as you go using an Oyster or contactless payment card. Find out about cash free buses.

For journeys on TfL services, single and return tickets are more expensive than pay as you go fares.

Group Day Travelcards

A Group Day Travelcard is a paper ticket that allows you, as part of a group of 10 people or more, to travel as much as you like from 09:30 Monday to Friday and anytime on weekends and public holidays.

Group Day Travelcards can be used on bus, Tube, tram, DLR, London Overground, TfL Rail and most National Rail services.

You have to be travelling in a group of 10 or more at all times when using a Group Day Travelcard. Group Day Travelcards are available for the following zones:

  • 1-6
  • 1-9

You can buy Group Day Travelcards at Tube station ticket machines.

If you're visiting London, you can also buy Group Day Travelcards online in advance from the Visitor Shop (zones 1-6 only).

Paper season tickets and photocards

You can buy a paper season ticket that covers your travel within the pay as you go area and to some National Rail stations outside London - at some Tube, London Overground and TfL Rail stations.

You will need a photocard which you can get from London Overground and TfL Rail ticket offices. You will need to provide your name and a passport sized photo.

The photo must be a true likeness with your full face visible. You must have nothing covering your head unless it is worn consistently for medical or religious reasons.

We will add the photocard number to your season ticket. The season ticket is only valid for travel when shown with the accompanying photocard. If you buy the season ticket from a ticket machine, you'll need to write down the photocard number yourself.

On the back of your paper season ticket there is space to write your name and address. You might like to complete this as it will make it easier to contact you if it's lost and found.
