Bus and Coach News: Jobseeker boost on West Yorkshire buses: The Buses for Jobs scheme which... #bus #coach #diesel

The Buses for Jobs scheme which offered free-travel to job-seekers in January has proved a hit in West Yorkshire, according to the region’s biggest operator, First. In the first half of the month it attracted over 3,000 users. Brandon Jones, head of communications for First in West Yorkshire, says: “We are delighted that this scheme has generated such a positive response from both jobseekers and local stakeholders. It is particularly pleasing that more than 3,000 unemployed people have taken advantage of this helping hand and actively use First buses to seek work in the month of January. We have received feedback that the scheme has helped some individuals find job interviews and offers of work and that is the best news of all.”
