Consultation on Free Bus Travel for Older and Disabled People and Modern Apprentices

You are invited to take part in a Consultation on Free Bus Travel for Older and Disabled People and Modern Apprentices
Why We Are Consulting?

The Scottish Government is launching this Consultation to seek your views on the concessionary travel scheme for older and disabled people (“the Scheme”).

This popular and valued scheme improves access for older and disabled people to essential services and opens up participation in family and other social activities that would otherwise not be affordable, ultimately offering independence to people who rely on bus travel.

To take part in the consultation and find out more about it please visit the Scot Gov website here >>
