Sustainable transport and active lifestyle discounts for staff members

Staff members at the University can access the SmartGo Leicestershire scheme of staff benefits, which focuses on sustainable transport and active lifestyles. It’s free to join and could save you a significant amount of money.

Everyday Discounts

You can use the offers on SmartGO to purchase things for everyday use or take advantage of discounts over the Christmas period. There are deals available for those who lead an active lifestyle at well-known retailers such as Halfords, Cotswold Outdoor and Rutland Cycling.

Beat the annual rail fare increase

Train commuters can save up to 10% on an East Midlands Railways annual season ticket. In addition to the SmartGO travel discounts, the University also offers an interest-free season ticket loan scheme for those who commute to work using public transport. More information can be found on the website.

Other deals include discounts with transport companies such as Arriva, Centrebus, Kinchbus, Cross Country and Railcard.
