Public transport for school trips
About this activity
Suitable for all schools and nursery pupils.
Use TfL public transport for your next school trip to familiarise your pupils with travelling on London’s underground, rail, tram and bus network.
Free Monday to Friday off-peak travel is available for all London school and nurseries registered with TfL’s School Party Travel scheme. You and your pupils must be visiting an educational, sporting or cultural venue in London. TfL allows up to two adults for every 10 pupils (for SEND pupils, two adults for each pupil is allowed).
Find out about the rules and separate arrangements for nurseries and special needs schools on the School Party Travel Scheme page.
Download the Tools for Schools pack for activities you can do with your pupils during and after your trip.
