I wish to use Oyster pay as you go after adding the discount entitlement of a 16-25 Railcard to my Oyster.

  1. Will I get the 34% discount on individual bus journeys (on £1.45)?
  2. Will I get the 34% discount on the daily price cap for buses (on £4.40)? If no, will the bus journey prices be an addition to the discounted off-peak price cap (£4.60 for Zones 1-2) if I achieved the cap by travelling on the tube earlier?


From National Railcards & Gold Cards on the TfL website:

If you are eligible to buy one of the following National Railcards:

  • 16-25 Railcard


You can get:

  • Discounts on some off-peak travel on Tube, DLR, London Overground and National Rail services in London

Not buses.


From Bus and tram on the TfL website:

[no mention of railcards]

So, no.

2 second part.

No. The price level of the daily cap is reduced because of your discount, but what the cap covers is the same.
