University staff can now purchase annual tram passes at a 15% discount.
The University has teamed up with NET – the tram operator – to offer University staff annual passes at the cost of £400, a saving of £75 off the full price, through salary deductions. By signing up, a monthly payment will be taken directly from your net salary for twelve months, giving you unlimited travel on the entire tram network – including the new lines to Toton and Clifton when they open this summer. The pass also allows you to park at the seven park and ride sites situated along the tram routes.
To take advantage of these prices, just complete the application form and return it to Pension & Benefits Services at King’s Meadow Campus. Sign up by 14 August in order to start your pass on 1 September. Applications will be accepted on a monthly basis; forms must be received by the 14th of the month for the travel pass to take effect from the start of the following month.
Yearly passes are also available to students for the cost of £225 – visit the NET website for a table of fares.
