One small benefit of turning 60 later this coming weekend is the 60+ Oyster Photocard*. Whatsmore I got mine a few days early. So that's free travel on public transport in London until I get the Freedom Pass in 7 years time. Yay! 60 is the new 59!
"If you're 60 or over and live in a London borough, you can get free travel on our transport services with an Oyster photocard.
Free travel on bus, Tube, tram, DLR, London Overground, TfL Rail and most National Rail services in London afrev 9:30am. You can travel free on TfL services from 09:00 weekdays and anytime at weekends and on bank holidays."
*The 60+ Oyster Photocard was first created in late 2012 by Boris Johnson when he was London mayor to keep his grey vote onside.
