Children’s’ Oyster cards hold £600,000 unclaimed a Freedom of Information request has revealed.
The BBC report:
If your child gets free travel with Zip Oyster cards you may find some unclaimed cash on their travel pass.
At the end of every school year, thousands of school children automatically have their Zip Oyster travelcards cancelled as they move into another age category.
The cards give free travel on buses and trams, but to get child fares on the Tube and trains parents have to load money onto the cards.
