A special Oyster card has been released to commemorate the historic events taking place in London during summer 2012.

Transport for London’s latest limited edition cards are now available to buy from all London Underground stations, Oyster ticket stops, travel information centres and online.

The design depicts some key London landmarks and events taking place this summer, including the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Shashi Verma, TfL’s director of customer experience, said: “This will be one of the most memorable summers that Londoners and visitors to the capital will experience and we are delighted to reflect that with our latest limited edition Summer Oyster cards.

“Our network will play a crucial role in delivering a wonderful summer and will provide many with a great souvenir as well as providing them with a convenient way to get around on public transport.”

Previous limited edition Oyster cards have been produced for the Diamond Jubilee and the royal wedding of William and Kate in 2011.
