Many pupils are still required to have their Young Scot Card updated to the new version. The new card has been in circulation since 2014, but many Young Scot Cardholders aged 15+ are without the new card. The old card is easily identified as it does not have a “pink strip” across the date of birth. If there is no pink strip the young person needs to upgrade their card by visiting young.scot/upgrade. The information is also on the Aberdeenshire website. http://www.aberdeenshire.gov.uk/roads-and-travel/public-transport/concessionary-travel/young-persons-national-entitlement-card/.
Please encourage pupils to check their card to see if they require an update.
