Free bus travel for jobless people in the Grantham area

Have your say

People facing the new year without a job are being offered a boost by bus operators.

Lincolnshire County Council has got on board with a national initiative organised by the Greener Journeys campaign to offer people looking for work free journeys on any CallConnect bus service in the county during January.

The service offers on-demand journeys and there are partnerships in place with Rutland County Council, Northamptonshire County Council and Peterborough City Council to allow journeys across the borders.

People who have been unemployed for between three months and a year will qualify and just need to present their Jobcentre Plus travel card.
