Young Persons’ Free Bus Travel
5-21 year olds living in Scotland can now apply to access free bus travel from 31 January. In light of high levels of COVID-19 transmission, the Scottish Government is asking that you only apply for the scheme at this point if it is essential that you, or your child, travel while restrictions are in place. 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.
The Transport Scotland website provides all the information needed to apply.
There are two ways to apply:
- Online at GETYOURNEC.SCOT (or through parentsportal.scot)
- If you cannot, or do not want to apply online please contact us on 03451 550066 or email MyFife.Account@fife.gov.uk for a paper application to be issued
If you have any queries on the actual scheme itself, you can email Transport Scotland at: email@example.com
