Transport for London is launching two limited edition Oyster cards to celebrate the exciting summer ahead. The special Oyster cards follow the popular Royal Wedding Oyster cards last April.

From mid-May, an Oyster card featuring an official portrait of The Queen will be available at all London underground ticket offices; selected Oyster ticket machines within zone 1; and TfL Travel Information Centres.

The second card celebrates the special events taking place this summer, including the Olympic and Paralympic Games, The Big Lunch and the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant. It is expected to be available from mid-June.
