About the mobility and scrappage fund

This pilot fund was available to eligible low-income households in specific areas of Scotland. 

Eligible households in Scotland were offered a £2,000 cash grant for scrapping an older vehicle, plus up to £1,000 towards the cost of sustainable travel options with the travel better grant. 

This project was funded by Transport Scotland, an agency of the Scottish Government, and administered by us. 

If you live within 20km of Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen or Dundee, you may be eligible for the low emission zone support fund

We expect people who apply and who plan to buy another vehicle to use the grant to replace the scrapped vehicle with one of a newer, more efficient Euro Standard.
