The cost of regular public transport is a significant burden for asylum seekers. Asylum seekers are not allowed to work and, therefore, rely exclusively on their government allowance. The weekly allowance for an individual is £37.75 for food, clothing, toiletries, personal items and transportation. The cost in Swansea of an adult day bus ticket is £4.70 which is 87% of a person's daily allowance and a weekly ticket is £22.50 which is 60% of a person’s weekly allowance. Taxis are even more expensive and asylum seekers are not eligible for other community transport schemes. Frequently, they must choose between using transport to access services or to remain isolated.
