9:13am Tuesday 8th January 2013 in News
JOB seekers in York are being offered free bus travel in a scheme aimed at helping the long-term unemployed get back to work.
The initiative, which is a joint effort by bus operators First, Arriva, Coastliner and EYMS, is part of the national Bus For Jobs scheme and will offer free journeys for those who have been unemployed between three months and a year.
Nigel Featham, managing director of Arriva Yorkshire, said: “We’re delighted to be taking part in this initiative. Free bus travel will enable job seekers across Yorkshire to make the most of the transport network this January and hopefully widen their opportunities for work.”
