    Claiming travelling expenses when attending an interview whilst unemployed 8th Apr 18 at 1:51 PM
    I am currently claiming new style JSA & have had a few interviews that have meant Ice had to take a train or a taxi from the station to reach the office of the company.
    During previous claims, there was the travel to interview scheme, but I couldn't find anything on gov.uk website.
    What schemes, if any, exist currently to offer support for travelling to interviews?

    Where do you get a bus pass for free?
    What if the interview (or your home) is not on a bus route?

    The criteria for a free bus pass is entirely different (and far stricter) than that for a disabled railcard.

    Please check your information before making misleading posts.
