Bus passes - National Entitlement Card (Disabled and 60 years and over)

 

If you have a disability, you may be entitled to free bus travel anywhere in Scotland.  Find out more about eligibility and how to apply.

Motability scheme

The Motability scheme gives people with a disability the opportunity to access personal transport at an affordable price.

Taxicard

If you are unable to use buses due to a disability, there is a concessionary travel scheme offering subsidised travel using a taxicard.

Dial-a-Journey

Central Shopmobility

Provide a loan of scooters, powered chairs and manual wheelchairs that make getting around the shops very easy.  Membership is available to anyone who has a temporary or permanent physical impairment that presents difficulties in getting around the shops.

Door-to-Door Service

Aims to provide affordable and accessible door-to-door transport for people who have mobility difficulties and cannot use conventional public transport.

Self-Drive Vehicles for Voluntary Groups

A self-drive service for bona-fide voluntary organisations who are registered with Dial-a-Journey.  Organisations wishing to hire must be registered as member organisations as legislation means we can't make vehicles available for hire to the general public.

WAVE and hiring larger vehicles

Accessible coaches are available that can accommodate larger numbers of wheelchairs and passengers (up to 24 seated passengers or 6 wheelchairs).
