Free bus travel to be granted for young people in Scotland

The Scottish Government has agreed to work to implement free bus travel for young people in Scotland from 2021, the Scottish Greens announced on 26 February.

The Greens said the move was a “major win” for the party, as part of the Scottish budget process.

Scottish Green co-leader Patrick Harvie said: “Free bus travel for young people is a transformational step towards tackling the climate emergency. This scheme will benefit young people starting college and families, some of whom stand to save thousands of pounds a year, and encourage whole generations of public transport users.”
