National Entitlement Card (NEC)

Junior NEC

What is a Junior NEC?

It is a card for those aged 5-10 years who wish to benefit from the Young Persons' (Under 22) Free Bus Travel scheme.

Some young people in this age group may have previously been eligible for a NEC called the Kidz card, this Junior NEC will replace this.

How do I apply for a card?
