Proposed new free bus scheme for 5-18 year olds

We are working to introduce a new statutory scheme to allow 5-18 year olds resident in Scotland to access free bus travel through the National Entitlement Card. Legislation was introduced into the Scottish Parliament on 21 January which, if approved, will enable us to begin preparations for the new scheme. The scheme will start operating as soon as practicable during the 2021-22 financial year.
