Led by The Scottish Government, young people in Scotland aged under 22 years old are entitled to free bus travel.

Posted: 26th April 2022

To access the scheme you must apply for a new National Entitlement Card (NEC) card.

Those aged between 5-15 must have a parent, guardian, or carer apply for a new NEC card on their behalf. Those aged between 16-21 should apply themselves.

It’s important that you apply for your new NEC Card in order to access the travel scheme, as old Young Scot Cards will not be accepted, and you will be required to pay your fare as normal.
