The great benefit of the [free] bike option is that it means you can travel for free at any time. In my new role as a care assistant I need to be able to get to lots of different appointments in the community, so a bike is perfect

It was so useful! Without the free bus pass I would have had to walk for well over an hour to get to work. At the time I didn’t have no money at all. Without the bus pass, I just couldn’t have got there as I didn’t have any other transport. The job would have been gone. I  recommend [the scheme] to other people. I think it’s really good. I say, ‘Do it, because it helps you get to work. And it motivates you to go out.’
