Help with travel to find work

A Jobcentre Plus Travel Discount Card lets you travel at reduce rates on c2c rail, in London and elsewhere when looking for work.

Cardholders can get half-price travel on many ticket types.

You can apply for a Jobcentre Plus Travel Discount Card if you are claiming one of the following:

  • jobseekers allowance, if you're 18 to 24 and have been unemployed for 6 to 9 months
  • jobseekers allowance, if you're 25 or over and have been unemployed for 6 to 12 months
  • incapacity benefit, employment and support allowance or income support, if you're actively engaged with an adviser in returning to employment

You need to go to your local Jobcentre Plus to apply for a Jobcentre Plus Travel Discount Card.

Contact Jobcentre Plus for full details of the scheme.

We do not provide discount cards, and are unable to help with enquiries.
