Middlesbrough Council has joined forces with Northern to provide them with free train travel to attend job interviews in the region -

Here in Brittany we have a similar scheme that gives 75% off rail travel.

Currently muddling along the Guingamp-Carhaix line

And, as mentioned elsewhere on this forum earlier in the week, every jobseeker in the UK, unemployed for three months or more, is entitled to a free Jobcentre Plus Travel Discount Card. This gives 50% off walk up standard class day rail fares and season tickets valid for up to 3 months.

The jobcentres have always had the ability to issue travel warrants, with restrictions to when it can be used. They donít seem to issue them unless a seeker asks.
Tell job coach youíve been offered an interview but canít afford to get there, they can issue a warrant for travel between where you live and where the interview is. I believe it is valid intermodal too.

Plymouth citybus posted recently to show them proof of interview and current unemployment for a free return. Not sure how it works
