Scottish Concession Cards Are Changing

Posted on Tuesday, 20th December 2016 at 08:54

Are you - or is someone you know, a parent, grandparent, family member or neighbour – using a OneScotland card for concessionary travel on Edinburgh Trams?

OneScotland cards will stop working after 31 December 2016.  Councils across Scotland are currently replacing the OneScotland cards which are used for concessionary travel by anyone aged 60 or over or anyone who has received a card on grounds of disability.

The new style card which will work after 31st December will either have the mygovscot or the saltire card logo instead of the OneScotland logo. Your new card should have been sent to you in the post in advance of 31 December.

Both new designs are valid for free travel on Edinburgh Trams if they have been issued by the City of Edinburgh Council. However, blind or visually impaired holders of Scottish National Entitlement Cards issued by other local authorities can also travel free on trams. Where entitled, a companion will too.
