Free bus travel for under-22s

By HWResLife 11 Feb 2022

Have you heard? If you are under 22 years, you can apply for a card to access the Young Persons’ (Under 22s) Free Bus Travel Scheme, which started on 31 January 2022.

You should be able to travel for free by bus if:

  • You are under 22 years old
  • You are living in Scotland for more than 6 months of the year
  • Have a valid National Entitlement Card (NEC) or Young Scot NEC with the valid free travel entitlement with you whenever you want to take the bus – otherwise, you’ll have to pay for your trip.

To get your free bus travel, you will need to apply for a National Entitlement Card (NEC) or Young Scot National Entitlement Card (Young Scot NEC). You will need to register for a mygovscot account and have a recent digital photo showing your head and shoulders. You’ll also need a photo or scan of your:

  • proof of identity (passport, driving licence)
  • proof of address (such as Council Tax bill or bank statement)
  • proof of disability (if applying for disabled concessionary travel)

Visit the Transport Scotland website to find out more about the scheme, or apply for a NEC online now.
