Get on the move ...

Getting to work can be difficult for some as the cost of travel can take away a lot of your salary, but did you know that there are several options to help save money on your commute to work ?


Connect2Work is a programme aimed at apprentices, employees, jobseekers and employers to encourage and help facilitate the use of sustainable transport to get to and from work.

The Connect2Work programme aims to change the way in which people commute to and from work in the Medina Valley area.

 

Connect2Work aims to change the behaviour and travel habits of commuters to increase longterm use of active and sustainable modes of travel to reduce congestion, pollution, and to promote health and wellbeing.

Trains

There’s every reason to be happy if you’re aged 16 to 25, because with this Railcard you’ll enjoy 1/3 off rail fares when you go by train.   It means you can save money on trips into town, days out to the coast, or weekend festivals – as many times as you like.

The Railcard costs just £30. So after three or four trips, the card will have paid for itself. And over a year, you could save an average of £199*.

More information on the 16-25 Railcard is HERE


There is also another railcard available for 16-17 year olds. If you’re aged 16 or 17, you can now enjoy 50% off standard Anytime, Off-Peak, Advance and Season tickets, helping you save money on trips into town, days out to the coast, travel to college or weekend festivals – as many times as you like.

A 16-17 Saver is just £30 and is valid for one year or until your 18th birthday, whichever comes first.
