Under 21 Discount Card 

What is the Under 21 discount card   ?

We are working in partnership with Aberdeenshire Council and Bain's Coaches to offer discounted multi journey tickets to some younger Aberdeenshire residents as part of a pilot scheme. We want to make it easier and more economical for those under the age of 21 to travel around Aberdeenshire.

If you are aged between 16 and 20 and travel on a regular basis, you may benefit from applying for a discount card.

The discounts available are within Stagecoach Bluebird:

Terms and conditions of the scheme

The scheme is operating on a trial basis. Aberdeenshire Council and Bain's Coaches reserve the right to alter the level of discount offered or to terminate the scheme. If any tickets purchased before the scheme is revised or terminated will be honoured.

Your Under 21 Discount card is not transferable to any other person and can only be used by the person to whom it was issued.

You must show your card to the driver each time you use your discounted ticket or you will be liable to pay the full adult fare.
