Using your card


When you get on the bus place your card on the electronic machine with your photo facing up.

If there's not an electronic ticket machine show your card to the driver.

Tell the driver your stop. The driver will help you if you need it.

Remember you can only use your most recently issued National Entitlement Card on the bus. Any other cards will not work and you will not be allowed free bus travel.


If you hold a Scottish National Entitlement Card, issued by the City of Edinburgh Council, you can travel for free on Edinburgh trams.

You cannot use Scottish National Entitlement Cards issued by other councils on tram services.

Blind or visually impaired holders of Scottish National Entitlement Cards issued by other local authorities can also travel free on trams.

Get further information on travelling by tram in Edinburgh on the Transport for Edinburgh website.
