Are you looking for work?  Do you feel that transport is limiting your job search?

We can help you get to a new job by public transport or by bicycle.

For more information about the schemes that we have in place and the eligibility criteria contact us on 0151 330 1185 and ask to talk about Bike for Work.

 

Bike for Work Package

 
If you’re over 16, live in Merseyside and have just been offered a job of a minimum of 12 weeks, then you could benefit from our ‘Bike for Work’ programme.
 
Is getting to your new workplace a problem?  If it's not easily accessible via public transport, or if you work irregular hours, then we can help.  By providing eligible applicants with a new bike and lock, as well as an initial induction session, we can help get you to work on time. 

For more information, contact your Job Centre advisor or ring 0151 330 1185 for an initial chat with us.
You can also send an email, supplying your contact details to: community@merseytravel.gov.uk
