    As per title. I'm retaking my exams as an external candidate at another college. I've been paying adult fares ever since my 16+ card expired and it's eating into half my income - ridiculous. Are there any discounts I'm not aware of? Any tricks people have used to get cheaper travel? (PM me if necessary) Transport in London is a rip off if you're not earning much.

    Thanks

    Unfortunatley if your not attending classes at a college you can't get discounts. I only got my 16+ one extended because I go to college for lessons, and it ends on the day of my last exam (31st jan). After that I have to pay full fare whether I can get a job or not.
