Travelling to work

There are a range of initiatives available to you to help make getting to and from work easier as a member of staff.

Keep it green

Take advantage of the environmentally-friendly options available for travelling to and from work

Cycle to work

Our Cycle to Work Scheme enables you to make savings on the cost of bicycles, safety accessories and component parts for travelling to and from work via a salary exchange scheme.

Electric bike loan scheme

The University of Bath, with support from B&NES, offers you the opportunity to hire a ‘Take Charge Bikes’ electric bike for up to two weeks.

Travelling by bus

Our University bus services take you to and from the University’s Claverton Down campus from various city centre stops at regular intervals throughout the day.

Car sharing

Save money and do your bit for the environment through our Car Sharing Scheme. Find out more about car sharing and other parking permits.

Please note that we currently strongly recommend staff and students against car sharing because if one person in the car were to test positive for Covid-19 then all those in the car would become contacts and be required to self-isolate.
