Season Ticket Loan Scheme
Loughborough University offers employees an interest-free annual season ticket loan to cover the cost of public travel between home and the workplace.
The scheme allows employees to make financial savings whilst encouraging the use of public transport wherever practicable.
Buying an annual season ticket is generally cheaper than purchasing weekly or monthly tickets with some operators offering an annual ticket for the equivalent price of 40 weekly tickets. University Staff can also benefit from an additional 10% off, with certain providers, through the SmartGO Leicestershire Scheme.
