Challenge Poverty Week: transport

Posted: October 5, 2023

Today’s Challenge Poverty Week topic looks at transport.

Concessionary travel schemes make getting around easier and cheaper for people in Scotland. By making sustainable travel choices easier to access, we can also help to tackle the climate emergency too.

Over two million people across Scotland are eligible to travel for free by bus, and eligible islands residents can access free ferry vouchers too.
