Student concessions on buses, coaches and trains

If you are a young person under the age of 26 years, or older but in full-time education, then you may be able to get travel discounts on certain coach and rail services, and if you 16-18 years old, you may get concessions on bus services.

Buses (for travel within city limits)

Accessible bookable MyBus travel information for passengers with disabilities.

Coaches (usually between towns and cities)


For rail travel within or outwith Glasgow, you could buy a Young Person’s Railcard for £30 and reduce the cost of most UK travel by up to 1/3. Anyone between 16 and 25 (or mature students aged 26 or over and in full time education) can apply for these cards: Student railcard. One of the main things to watch with this card is it cannot be used before 10am on weekdays!
