A scheme funded by Great Western Railway is offering free group travel to residents’ associations, youth clubs, and any other local organisations or charities working with disadvantaged communities in the West of England. The scheme aims to remove the financial barriers of travel for low-income or disadvantaged communities.

Groups can claim a free group ticket to many locations in the South West of England, up to a maximum of 20 people, until February 2017. For more information, check your eligibility and to apply, visit the Severnside Rail website.
