Travel for Women Over 60
If you Receive Attendance Allowance, Personal Independence Payment, Living Allowance under the higher rate of mobility or higher/middle rate of care, live in a care or residential home or hospital, or are a blue badge holder you'll need a letter to confirm your eligibility.
As well as Scotland-wide free bus travel, visually impaired cardholders are also eligible for free train, Edinburgh tram travel and concessions are available on ferry travel.
Your National Entitlement card gives free bus travel but, if you are registered blind or have a visual impairment, you're also entitled to use your card to access concessions on train, Edinburgh tram and ferry travel within Scotland too.
If you have the eye symbol on your National Entitlement card you're entitled to free Standard Class rail travel across Scotland and for journeys to and from Berwick-upon-Tweed and Carlisle as well as free Edinburgh tram travel and concessions on ferry journeys throughout Scotland. Please contact the service operator for further information.
Use your National Entitlement Card to get a ticket in advance or on 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 (PDF, 340 KB) for more information on this.
If you need a companion to help you use public transport your National Entitlement Card will allow them to travel for free too.
Travelling with a companion can make things much easier. Helping you on and off the bus, carrying shopping or communicating with the driver helps maintain the freedom you get with the National Entitlement Card.
If you have this symbol on your card, you're entitled to have a companion travel with you, on the same journey, for free. Your companion and journey can vary, but your companion can only travel for free when they are with you. You are not obliged to travel with a companion, but the entitlement is there for when you need it.
Your companion is entitled to travel for free if you meet one of the following criteria:
- You live in a care/residential home or hospital and are eligible for the higher or middle rate of the care component of Disability Living Allowance, or Personal Independence Payment or Attendance Allowance
- You receive the higher or middle rate of the care component of Disability Living Allowance
- You receive the standard or enhanced rate of daily living component of Personal Independence Payment
- You receive Attendance Allowance
- You are registered blind
