Wheels to Work

Transport costs can be prohibitive for people who are unemployed or in training. Perhaps one of these schemes could help:

Bike loan scheme – You can borrow a decent hybrid bike from Bristol Bike Project, for two months to start with.

Bus ticket scheme - If you need help with specific journeys, such as interviews, careers fairs, workplace training or the start of a new job, then you may be able get a free bus ticket.

For the bike loan and the bus ticket scheme you will need to be referred by trainers, work clubs etc who are associated with the Wheels to Work scheme. Email or phone 01454 868244 to find out about these two schemes.

Loan to Buy Scooter Scheme – This is for people who have been offered a job or have started a job in the last 4 weeks, after being a job seeker. If you are struggling to get to your job and either live or work in Bristol or South Gloucestershire then you may be eligible. You can apply online at: or contact the Wheels to Work team.
