Are you aged U22?

Don't miss out on free bus travel! 5–21-year-olds living in Scotland are entitled to free bus travel, as part of a scheme led by the Scottish Government. It’s important that you apply for your new NEC Card in order to access the travel scheme, as older Young Scot Cards will not be accepted, and you will be required to pay your fare as normal.

You can apply online for your NEC card to travel free of charge ➡➡ getyournec.scot
