If you require a new First Bus ticket you can now get a code sent to you that can be used with the First Bus App.
For more information and to get a code, get in touch with Sarah Stow, Falkirk Champions Board Co-Ordinator (Sarah.Stow@falkirk.gov.uk).
Young Persons’ (Under 22s) Free Bus Travel
Young people who are 5-21 years old living in Scotland can apply to access free bus travel. Young people need a new or replacement National Entitlement Card (NEC) or Young Scot National Entitlement Card (Young Scot NEC) before hopping on board. Previously issued cards will not allow access to the scheme.
There are several ways to apply for a new or replacement Young Scot National Entitlement Card (Young Scot NEC):
- Online at getyournec.scot
You can find out more information about the application process and what documents you need on the getyournec.scot website.
- Directly with Falkirk Council
You can find their details in the Young Scot Card section of this website.
If you’re aged between 16 and 21 and already have an active NEC or Young Scot NEC, you have the option to download free bus travel onto your existing card using the Transport Scot Pass Collect app. This means you may not need to apply for a new card to access your free bus travel.
If you are interested in using a bike to get around as a travel alternative, you now have the opportunity to get a free, fully refurbished bike from Recyke-a-bike.
For more information, get in touch with Sarah Stow, Falkirk Champions Board Co-Ordinator (Sarah.Stow@falkirk.gov.uk).
You can get free leisure access to Falkirk Community Trust Gyms. To organise your membership you will need to email Sarah Stow, Falkirk Champions Board Co-Ordinator (Sarah.Stow@falkirk.gov.uk) with your name, date of birth and address. You will then be sent a membership number and instructions on how to access your free leisure entitlement.
