The National Entitlement Card allows people aged 60+ and people with a disability to travel for free on local or Scottish long distance buses
Understand what you’re entitled to: Terms and conditions
Using your card
Use your National Entitlement Card to get a ticket in advance or onboard the bus. Advance tickets must be collected in person.
When you get on the bus you'll notice an electronic ticket machine. Place your card on the machine with your photograph facing up and tell the driver your stop. The driver will help if you need assistance.
If there isn't a ticket machine like this, show your card and tell the driver your stop.
Remember you can only use your most recently issued National Entitlement Card on the bus. Any other cards will not work and you will not be allowed free bus travel. See our campaign poster for more information on this.
