Beat public transport price rises - reminder
06 Dec 2011
Apply by 13 December to get your train, Metrolink and County Card annual tickets at this year’s prices.
As a Staff Benefit scheme and as part of the University’s commitment to Sustainable Travel Planning, The University offers an interest free loan scheme for annual public transport tickets (bus, train, tram and combination).
Purchasing tickets this way allows staff to benefit from more economical annual tickets that work out more cost effective than daily, weekly and monthly tickets. We also access some corporate discounts as part of the scheme. Overall savings range depending on the price of the ticket, but many members of staff save hundreds of pounds!
In addition, many of you request train and County Card tickets (GM bus and train ticket) to start at the end of December in order to get their ticket at that year’s price.* This increases the savings even further if prices go up the following year.

Anyone wishing to renew or start a new ticket before the end of the year should take their application to their local HR team before Tuesday 13 December in order that we can get your ticket to you before the Christmas break. Applications can be made as of now.
