I am less than 2 weeks from my 60th birthday and have set up a photocard account. However, it does not give me an option of applying for a 60+ card, only for a student or apprentice card. I called TFL but they didn't answer and I wasn't even allowed to join a queue to talk to someone. Has anyone else had this problem?

By the way hope you had a wonderful birthday!
Scotland - free
NI - free
London - free
Manchester - free
The rest of England, including the rural areas that really need decent, affordable public transport - get your wallet out!

I am in the same position. I wonder if it is because I already have an Oyster account so when I try to add on a new photocard it doesn't work. Any tips? I can not even see how to terminate my existing account and start again and no response on any contact channels
I phones and the customer advisor said there were IT problems on line with the verification process. There was nothing wrong with my passport - just their system. I was assured it would be fixed within 48 hours but it wasnt so I printed the form and went to the post office. Got my card on Saturday after 2 weeks of trying on line!
