Free buses for the unemployed
7:20am Thursday 10th January 2013 in News
PEOPLE looking for work will be able to get free travel on bus routes subsidised by Thurrock Council.
The council is taking part in the national Bus For Jobs scheme, being run by the major bus operators and the Greener Journeys Campaign, throughout January.
The scheme aims to make it easier for unemployed people to attend job interviews and other appointments.
The card enables the holder to travel free on most bus services run by First, Arriva, Stagecoach, Go-Ahead and National Express buses, and some run by smaller operators, on presentation of the card.
