The Accord Card Scheme
One Card. Many Benefits. Great Discounts!
The Accord Card, Aberdeen City Council's smartcard scheme, not only provides free bus travel within Scotland, it also gives secondary school pupils access to cashless catering at all of Aberdeen City Council's secondary schools, can be used as your library membership card and carries the Access to Leisure Pass.
Whether you are 18 and want to buy a drink at a pub or 15 and want to buy tickets at a cinema, you will find the Accord Card useful as its a nationally recognised proof of age card. Using your Accord Card means you dont need to carry around your passport or driving licence to prove your age.
Sport Aberdeen and Aberdeen Golf members will appreciate the Accord Card as their membership card and many young people already make good use of the many discounts and offers available via the Young Scot scheme.
What's more, all Aberdeen City residents with an Accord Card can take advantage of up to 50% discount on many activities and offers on anything from entertainment to leisure and sport under the Residents Discount Scheme.
The Accord Card team is always looking for new and exciting offers for their card holders and the latest offer available under the scheme is Pay-As-You-Go driving. Accord Card holders aged 18 and over can join the Co-Wheels car club FREE (normally a joining fee of £25 applies) and also receive £20 driving credit to get them started.
