Get your 2016 travel season ticket at 2015 prices

(25 November 2015)

You can purchase your 2016 Train, tram and bus annual season tickets before the price increases in the New Year. Applications close on Wednesday, 9 December 2015 to allow for delivery before Christmas.

Annual public transport season tickets are usually far better value than daily, weekly or monthly options, for full time staff. Savings vary, mainly based on distance, but can be significant. For example buying an annual ticket instead of a daily ticket from Wilmslow to Manchester can save you £424.

As part of the Staff Benefit scheme and the University’s Sustainable Travel Plan, the University enables staff to benefit from an annual ticket by purchasing it on their behalf, followed by interest free payments from their salary over 10 months. The scheme is available for all forms of public transport including train, bus, tram and multi-mode passes, with some offering additional corporate discounts.
