Bus For JobsAre you 18 years old or over, been out of work for three months or more, and trying to find a job, or perhaps needing to travel to job interviews or looking for training?

If the answer is yes, a little extra help is at hand for early 2013 courtesy of some of Britain’s leading bus companies and Jobcentre Plus. Oxford Bus Company is offering FREE travel on their city bus services for one month – from 1st to 31st January 2013 – for people who are 18 years old and have been unemployed for more than three months.

Known as Bus for Jobs, the initiative is a collaboration of these leading bus companies and JobCentre Plus in England, Scotland and Wales. To qualify for free travel, you must carry a JobCentre Plus Travel Discount Card which is obtainable free of charge from Jobcentre Plus branches. You’re eligible if you claim Jobseekers’ Allowance, Incapacity Benefit, Employment and Support Allowance or Income Support and are actively engaged with a Jobcentre Plus adviser in returning to employment.

Cardholders can make unlimited numbers of bus journeys on the routes offered by participating bus companies in England, Scotland and Wales.

You can find out about the coverage in your area by visiting the Bus for Jobs section on this specially-created website: www.busforus.co.uk/busforjobs

Please note that our X90, airline and BROOKESbus services are not included in this scheme.
