job centre 'travel to interview' scheme stopped!

http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Employment/Jobseekers/programmesandservices/DG_173631

Well if you are lucky enough to be invited for an interview, you can no longer get any help in traveling there.
This was the first I had heard about this, while looking at the direct gov site and some other sites and links. How many barriers can they keep putting up???? It is hard enough knocking them down to start with, and now it seems what is a large problem for many (affording any transport) this has been taken away.
Not much to say on the job front other than I still want one and searching hard. If anyone reading this knows of any or has any ideas please feel free to comment.
