National Entitlement Card

The National Entitlement Card is a smartcard scheme run as a partnership between the Scottish Government, Scotland's local councils and others.  This card allows free bus travel to older people and people with disabilities.  They can travel free on any local bus service, or scheduled long distance coach service, anywhere in Scotland.

People who live in the area covered by the Strathclyde Concessionary Travel Scheme are also able to use their card to get cheaper fares on First ScotRail trains and the Glasgow Subway.

Older people 60+
If you are over 60 you can get an application form from your nearest Post Office or from a Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) Travel Centre.
