There is a Petition on the Government website that is asking the Government to : To fund free bus travel for all ESA, JSA and Universal Credit claimants. It was created by Maria Nelson who lives with back and joint problems and due to her semi-rural location has a 12 mile circular trip to the nearest jobcentre and a 16 miles round trip for medical and support services. Maria attends various appointments for both health and support, and with a daily bus pass being £7.50, a busy week can cost her over a quarter of her ESA. Realising she is not alone she decided to start the petition
Empathising with Maria’s situation, I am supporting this petition through this post; to give you a proper insight as to its importance, below is the rationale in Maria’s words.
