Benefits - Bus and rail travel
If you're between 16 and 18, over 60, or have a disability you could be eligible for free or subsidised travel to get around Scotland and your local area. In addition, Highland residents are also entitled to half fare travel on train journeys within Highland.
If you hold a Scotland-wide Blind Scheme card, you and your companion can travel free on journeys that are wholly within Highland, or can travel on journeys that terminate in Aberdeen, Edinburgh or Glasgow for 50p for a single journey or £1 for a return ticket.
The Scotland-wide concessionary travel scheme for young people allows all 16 - 18 year olds and young full-time volunteers up to the age of 25 concessionary travel on buses, rail and ferries throughout Scotland. The scheme provides a third off bus and rail travel throughout Scotland. If you live on a Scottish Island, you are entitled to two free return journeys to the mainland each year.
