Metro Card Discounts
The University operates a scheme for staff to purchase MCards at a 15% discount off the normal cost of an annual MCard.
Metro have agreed this discount with the University in recognition of our efforts to promote sustainable travel choices and our commitment to developing and maintaining a travel plan.

The scheme involves the University purchasing the Annual MCards on a bulk basis and recovering the cost from participants by equal deductions from their Monthly salary spread over the year.
There are four application rounds each academic year:
|Start of Metrocard||Application Deadline|
|1st October||15th August|
|1st December||15th October|
|1st February||15th December|
|1st May||15th March|
Staff joining the scheme in December, February and May pay a pro rata fee for the MCard up to the 30th of September and can then renew from the 1st of October for a full 12 month period.
