    Government-funded trial will see drivers who ditch their cars given £3,000 per year to spend on public transport
    Drivers will be paid up to £3,000 per year if they agree to swap their cars for public transport, under Government plans to reduce congestion and air pollution.

    A Government-funded trial this year will see motorists who give up their cars paid a sum of between £2,000 and £3,000 every year to spend on public transport, electric car hire and bicycle sharing schemes, the Times has reported.

    thats all well and good but the public transport isnt there.ive looked at this recently as my back went out and i couldnt drive, i would need to either move house or change jobs or both. to get from here to where a client is i would need to take 2 buses, a train and a taxi each way and it would take 3 times as long at least and thats just one journey. to get to hospital appointments would require taxis at either £10 per trip or £20 per trip depending on which hospital.its fine if you live somewhere like london where there is the infrastructure but when you live in rural derbyshire it doesnt work.if i could afford housing in london it would be great as i qualify for the veterans oyster card so public transport is free. its great for weekends away though.
