Holders of the ‘job centre plus Travel Discount Card’ will, during January 2013, be able to travel for free on almost every local bus service operated by four big bus companies. In addition, Jobcentre Plus advisers can use the Flexible Support Fund to provide help with travel costs, either attending job interviews or for a short time after an individual finds employment. Work programme providers also have the discretion to provide financial help if it is required.
