News From Orkney Islands Council
As from Wednesday 23 September, people aged 60 and over are able to apply for their National Entitlement Card (NEC) online.
A NEC allows anyone aged sixty or over and eligible disabled people who live in Scotland to travel free on any local bus service and scheduled long distance coach services throughout Scotland.
It also entitles permanent residents in Orkney to two free return ferry journeys to the Scottish Mainland or Shetland per year.
For those who are unable to apply online, paper applications will still be processed.
Anyone requiring special assistance, an appointment can be made with the Transportation Team to talk over the application process. They can be contacted on 01856873636.
