Cheaper travel with the National Entitlement Card scheme.
Transport Scotland aims to make travel as accessible and affordable as possible. To achieve this, we offer concessionary travel for young Scots, disabled travellers, over 60s and ferry passengers.
The National Entitlement Card allows disabled and elderly people in Scotland who meet the scheme eligibility criteria to travel for free on the nation’s bus networks
Residents of the Western Isles, Orkney and Shetland who have a National Entitlement Card can also get two free return ferry journeys to the mainland each year
The Young Scot National Entitlement Scheme helps make travel cheaper across Scotland. Apply today if you are aged 16-18 or you are a full time volunteer under 26.
The Thistle Assistance Card and App was developed to make using public transport easier for older people and those with disabilities or illness
Following the consultation on Free Bus Travel for Older and Disabled People and Modern Apprentices, there will be no change to the bus pass age of eligibility.
Non-bus concessions also delivered on the National Entitlement Card (NEC)
