Get ready for Give Your Car a Rest Day

(11 May 2015)

As interest in Give Your Car a Rest Day gathers momentum, the University has organised an event to help you with your travel choices in the lead-up to the day itself - 19 June Open Day.

On Tuesday, 12 May (11am to 3pm), representatives from the following organisations will host stalls on the ground floor of University Place (drum area):

  • Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM)
  • Northern Rail
  • Stagecoach
  • First Bus
  • TfGM Cycling
  • Environmental Sustainability
  • UMBUG (Bike User Group)
  • Run-Commute UoM
  • Car Park Services
  • Edinburgh Bicycle Co-op
  • Ken Foster's Cycle Logic

There'll be a wealth of travel information available and you'll have opportunities to:

  • create your own Personalised Travel Plan in advance or on the day;
  • pick up free taster tickets (for car drivers) – a weeks’ travel on Northern Rail or an any-bus (System One) or Metrolink day ticket;
  • talk through your journey with the experts and get information on the University’s Sustainable Travel Plan options and initiatives;
  • win prizes (for sustainable travellers) - enter the sustainable travel prize draw, with a chance to win one of four £50 vouchers.

Please do come along - and spread the word to your colleagues as well. We’ll be using #restcarUoM on the day.
