Scottish Government — Concessionary fares consultationDeadline 17 November 2017
The Scottish Government is launching this Consultation to seek your views on the concessionary travel scheme for older and disabled people (“the Scheme”).
The Government aims to provide free bus travel for those who need it the most, and therefore want to look at options to ensure the longer-term sustainability of the scheme so that free bus travel can continue to benefit those who have the greatest need.
The Government are aware of the particular challenges facing younger people and will be asking for your views on the proposal to provide free bus travel to Modern Apprentices and how that might be taken forward. They will also be looking to provide free companion travel for eligible disabled children under five who are not currently covered by the Scheme.

The consultation runs until 17 November.
