I am looking for details of the scheme you offer to carers which provides them with discounted or concessionary travel on local public transport (i.e. bus, ferry, local rail, tram, subway etc). Please include details of:

  • Discount/ concession available to carers in your authority area
  • the qualifying criteria, ie, if it is reliant on Carer's Allowance entitlement, or a bespoke assessment 
  • mode(s) of transport discount or concession is available on
  • the number of carers who access/receive the discount or concession
  • the financial support the authority provides to run the discount or concession system
  • if known, the number of journeys taken under the discount or concessionary scheme
  • link to where this relevant information is held on your website


The Comhairle do not provide any concession or travel discount scheme for carers.
