Date: 28th May 2021


Closing date: 21st June 2021

This consultation seeks views on the impact on island communities of the introduction of free bus travel throughout Scotland for those under age 22.

Following a consultation on free bus travel throughout Scotland for under 19s at the end of 2020, a number of responses raised issues around the impacts of the scheme on island communities. Subsequently, Transport Scotland committed to carrying out an Island Communities Impact Assessment (ICIA) for the scheme before its introduction. This further consultation seeks views to help gather evidence to inform the ICIA.
