National Entitlement Card
The National Entitlement Card allows people over 60 and people with a disability to travel for free on local or Scottish long-distance buses, without any peak-time restrictions.
There are only a small number of services on which your National Entitlement Card can't be used, for example premium-fare night buses and City Sightseeing buses.
Application forms are available from council information offices, libraries, local travel centres or Post Offices, depending on where you live in Scotland.
For details of how to apply, contact your local council
When applying, you'll need:
- a completed application form
- a recent photograph
- proof of age or disability
- proof of your current address
If you meet certain eligibility criteria, you can be issued with a companion card so a companion can travel with you.
Transport Scotland has details of the eligibility criteria and the application process.
