London apprentices to receive 30% travel discount

It has been announced today that apprentices will receive a 30% discount on Transport for London travel cards, which could total discounts of up to £660 per year.

The announcement comes as part of a scheme launched to encourage school leavers to enrol on apprenticeships.

The discount will apply to bus, tram and tube journeys in the city and apprentices will need to be enrolled on a training course for a minimum of twelve months to be eligible.

The scheme is designed to contribute to the government's plan to create 100,000 apprenticeships by the end of the year.

Boris Johnson made a statement declaring that: "London's
apprentices are now providing a fantastic contribution to our economy and it's only right that they are recognised for their hard work and commitment."
