Under 22’s Free Bus Travel

From the 31st January 2022, everyone under the age of 22 will receive free bus travel across Scotland.

In order to use the free bus travel, you must have a National Entitlement Card (NEC) or Young Scot National Entitlement Card (Young Scot NEC).


How to apply

You can either apply online at Get your NEC or on Parents Portal. If you are applying online, it may be useful to look out the documents you will need as part of the application process before applying. If you already have a NEC or Young Scot NEC, then you can simply download free bus travel onto your existing card using the Transport Scot Pass Collect App
