Transport Scotland has announced that under 22s living in Scotland can benefit from free bus travel from 31 January 2022 through a Scottish government scheme that aims to transform bus travel while supporting children, young people and families.

Tens of thousands of young people have already applied and received their card and will now be able to start travelling for free. As the programme gears up over the coming weeks, many more applications are in the pipeline.

As a result, this means that over 2.3 million people – everyone under 22, everyone over 60 and disabled people and carers – can now benefit from free bus travel in Scotland.

Increasing bus use will help us to achieve our world-leading goal of reducing the number of kilometres travelled by car by 20 per cent by 2030 and reaching net zero emissions by 2045.
