Jobcentre Plus announces new Travel Discount Card for apprenticeships

Jobcentre Plus has announced a new Travel Discount Card for individuals on the first 3 months of their apprenticeships and the unemployed.

The card provides a 50% discount on most National Rail journeys, including Transport for London via the Oyster system.

The card is intended to help unemployed people with the travel costs of attending interviews with employers, travelling to recruitment open days, and job fairs and can also be used for the first three months of employment, including apprenticeships.

Claimants in England and Wales are eligible for the discount card once they have been registered unemployed for 13 weeks.

For more information, contact your local Jobcentre Plus.
