COVID-19: FREE NHS TRAVEL

2 months ago Fri 27th Mar 2020

From 27 March and until further notice all NHS workers can travel free on all Borders Buses services.

To qualify for free travel, NHS staff simply show their valid NHS card to travel. We are hoping to offer NHS free app tickets and will keep you updated. 

We have reduced our service levels and will now only serve the Borders area. We are working with Scottish Borders Council and other local operators to deliver a demand response bus. 

This emergency service is for those who have no alternative than to leave the home to visit the shop for essentials – food/prescriptions and attending or travelling to work at Borders General Hospital or local care homes.

The service will be available in Galashiels, Kelso, Peebles, Selkirk, Jedburgh, Duns, Newcastleton, Hawick and possibly, at a later date, Berwick. 

In addition, specific journeys will be provided for key works and NHS staff traveling to the BGH.

To book your seat or NHS journey please visit Scottish Borders Council website where all info is available. 

Safety remains our number one priority and we urge all customers to listen to the government’s extremely important instruction and only travel if essential
