The Oyster card can be used on the Tube, buses, trains and the DLR Credit: PA

Londoners aged 60 and over will be able to use public transport in the capital free of charge from today, with a 60+ Oyster photocard.

The scheme compliments the Freedom Pass, which is currently available to people aged 61 or over. The eligibility threshold for the pass is to gradually rise in line with the women's state pension until it reaches 66.

People can apply for a 60+ Oyster Photocard two weeks before their 60th birthday. Applications must be made online.
