Concession Schemes

Free Travel for Senior Citizens 

In Scotland, everyone gets a special birthday gift when they turn 60: a free bus pass which can be used on any service anywhere in the country! 

There are no restrictions on when or how often you can travel - all you need to do is place your card on the reader, tell the driver where you’re going and then take your ticket. 

To get a NEC card, visit or stop by Dundee House to pick up an application form. The Council should also be contacted if you need a replacement card in the event of loss or damage. 

We will only give out temporary bus tickets (as a goodwill gesture) when a cardholder can surrender their fault card to the driver; we are not obliged to provide replacement travel for cards that have been lost.
