The scheme applies to bus travel round Scotland and is designed to save parents money, allowing them to leave cars at home. It is also designed to save undergraduates cash when travelling to and from colleges and universities.

Parents must apply for anyone who is under 16.

Anyone with a Young Scot National Entitlement Card (NEC) or non-Young Scot branded NEC can download the Transport Scott Pass Collect app to transfer the free bus travel onto their existing NEC card without needing to make an application for a replacement card.
