Young Scot card

The Young Scot National Entitlement Card is available free if you are a resident in Scotland and aged between 11 and 25.

What you can get

The card currently gives you the following benefits:

  • Young Scot membership and discounts
  • Young Scot rewards
  • cashless catering in all North Lanarkshire secondary schools
  • PASS accredited voluntary proof of age
  • library membership card
  • leisure membership card
  • access to future services, benefits and rewards on the National Entitlement Card

From 31 January 2022, if you are under 22 you can get free bus travel across Scotland. If you already have a National Entitlement Card or Young Scot National Entitlement Card (issued before 10 January 2022), you must apply for a new or replacement card to travel by bus for free.

If you are 16, 17 or 18 (or aged 19 to 25 and a full time volunteer) you can also get cheaper transport on trains and ferries with your Young Scot NEC Card. 

For further details of all travel concessions visit the Transport Scotland website.

Young Scot cardholders can use their Young Scot card to verify their details to obtain a digital identity with Yoti.  Yoti is a mobile app which is used as a secure and easy way for citizens to verify their details to obtain a reusable digital identity.  In the absence of a passport or driving licence, the PASS accredited Young Scot card provides young people with a valuable and vital route to obtain a digital identity and prove who they are with many organisations online and in person.
