National Concessionary Bus Travel for Apprentices Executive Summary

A new report from Greener Journeys calls on Government to adopt a concessionary scheme for apprentices to assist with the cost of getting to work by bus. Greener Journeys believes that the initiative would help tackle the prohibitive cost of accessing work on ‘apprentice minimum wage’ and address youth unemployment crisis. Working with KPMG LLP the detailed fiscal analysis estimates that the scheme would give the UK economy a boost of almost £27.3 million a year – £2.44 of benefits for every £1 invested. Wider benefits to the economy are expected to increase over time as new demand stimulates the need for further capacity and further service improvements.
