Discounted bus travel with National Entitlement card

Concessionary bus pass

People who live in Scotland and are aged 60 and over or who have a disability can apply for a National Entitlement Card that gives them free bus travel throughout Scotland.

Some disabled people will be able to get a card that allows them and a companion to travel free and people with visual impairments can also access free rail transport.

You will need to bring with you proof of your address and proof of your entitlement to the card.

You will also need a passport size and quality photograph - head and shoulders only, in colour against a plain background, with nothing obscuring your face.

Young people aged 16-18 years old and 19-25 year old full time volunteers are entitled to 30% travel discount with a Young person's bus concession card.

Fair Processing Notice

All concessionary card holders – over 60’s, disabled – are to be issued with a new ‘mygov’ smart card.  The cards currently held will no longer work after the end of the year.   We have been advised by the card issuer that replacement cards will only be issued to verified addresses and we are currently working with them to carry out a data match/cleanse exercise.  This is to ensure replacement cards are issued to accurate and up-to-date addresses.   

West Dunbartonshire Council (the Data Controller) will be extracting citizen contact details (name, address, post code, date of birth) from the following systems: Council Tax, SEEMIS, Customer Relationship Management System and Care First (Blue Badge information),  for the purpose of data cleansing and matching.  It is in the legitimate interests of the Council and its citizens to ensure replacement cards are issued to correct addresses and the information extracted will be used for this sole purpose only.
