National Entitlement Card - How to Apply
Under 22’s Free Travel
5-21 year olds living in Scotland can now apply to access free bus travel from 31 January. All other eligible applicants will be proactively encouraged to apply at a later date.
Even if you already have a National Entitlement Card or Young Scot National Entitlement Card, you must apply for a new or replacement card to travel by bus for free. Parents or guardians must provide approval for children aged between 5-15 to access the scheme by applying on their behalf. Young people aged 16-21 should apply themselves.
