Eligible care leavers aged between 18 and 25, who live in London, can now apply for half price bus and tram travel, after a new travel concession opened for applications this week.   Announced by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan in October 2023, the new concession will support between 15,000 – 16,000 care leavers across London aged between 18 to 25 who are now eligible to apply for the travel concession. The concession will directly support those who have left care once they turn 18 by allowing them to be able to travel more affordably while they transition into independent living.  The new concession is part of the Pan-London Care Leavers Compact, a common core offer of support designed with care-experienced young people and agreed by the Mayor, TfL, London boroughs and London’s health services.
