Answered By:

This information is not available as we don't know the cost to TfL of each discount photo card; this depends on which tickets are purchased with it.

For example, when an Apprentice Oyster photocard is used to pay for a 7 day Zone 1-2 Travelcard, the customer saves nearly £10 and the saving on a 7 day Bus and Tram Pass is around £6.

3,487 Apprentice Oyster photocards have been issued to date.
