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.’
I popped along this lunchtime and picked up an Onguard Bulldog STD-8010 Keyed Shackle Lock (currently £20 on Amazon) in exchange for an old (and not very secure) cable lock. This is all very generous, and I hope that it helps people to lock up their bikes securely and discourage theft.
