De Courcey Buses: University Travel Card

University staff who receive a monthly salary can buy a University Travel Card, valid on many Travel de Courcey services. There are other salary deduction travel card options for University staff detailed on the Payroll website.

Cost and payment

The cost is set at two levels based on pay grade as follows:

Grades 1 to 5: £12.50 per month
Grades 6 to 9: £16.67 per month

Deductions for the University Travel Card are taken from your salary every month in arrears, with the first deduction taken the month after the application is received by Payroll. Salary deductions for the Travel Card will be continuous until you cancel the card.
