You'll receive a code via email, please go to 'mobile tickets' section of the app, and select 'redeem a gift code' enter the code you received, and your ticket will appear! 

Great value kids tickets!

McGill's kid's tickets offer all-day, weekly, 4-week and even 10-week unlimited travel within each GoZone, which means when the kids are out an about or travelling to and from school, travel is taken care off, as GoZone tickets can be used as many times as you like!

Children age between 5-15 and those travelling to and from school in their uniform can enjoy unlimited travel at the discounted price. Due to widespread abuse of child tickets by adults, to protect children being caught up in a problem that is not theirs, where possible, we would ask secondary aged customers, who could be mistaken for an adult, to please carry their Young Scot card. It's one of those things we must do if a child looks older than 15 years old. Click here for more details.
