The Rail Delivery Group are currently working on promoting their Jobcentre Plus Travel Discount Card. It's worth looking into if you're seeking employment! You can read the full news release on their website.
If you’re claiming Jobseekers Allowance (JSA) or Universal Credit (UC), you could be entitled to a Jobcentre Plus Travel Discount Card. This card is available only from Jobcentres. Find your nearest Jobcentre here.
Delivered in partnership with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and Jobcentre Plus, the card gives holders a 50% discount on journeys across Britain.
Anyone claiming JSA or UC for 3-9 months (18-24 year olds) or 3-12 months (over 25s) can apply through their Work Coach and local Jobcentre Plus. 
Prior to the pandemic, over 1.1 million journeys were made using the card – however that number dropped to 722,900 between March 2020 and October 2021. Employment stats out today show job vacancies hitting a record high of 1.17 million, meaning that hundreds of thousands more could benefit and slash their travel costs as they search for their next opportunity.
Have you ever heard of the Jobcentre Plus Travel Discount Card? Do you think it's a good idea? Do you think it's something you could benefit from?
