Free travel win just the ticket

Have your say

JOBSEEKER Lisa Sheppard had reason to celebrate after finding work - and winning three months free travel in a competition to get there, too.

Lisa, aged 18, from Woodhouse, Sheffield, was the lucky winner drawn at random from competition entries to win a three-month TravelMaster – giving her free bus, train and tram travel across South Yorkshire.

South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive launched the competition as part of its Access to Opportunities project, which helps residents in South Yorkshire get to work, education and training.

Lisa said: “I recently got a job as a sales assistant after looking for a long time.

“The win has come at the right time because I can use my TravelMaster to get there and back, so it will save me money.”
