Cycle to work

The number of people who commute to campus by bicycle is increasing year-on-year and it's easy to see why. With picturesque views along the cycle paths, free cycle parking and many more benefits. Staff can find out more about the range of travel flexible benefits on offer too.


Sustainable business travel

The new travel decision tree and travel guidance aims to support the carbon reduction target with regards to air travel at Lancaster University, specifically for academics and staff travelling on business on behalf of the University. A carbon data dashboard will be available to departments giving access to real time information based on past trips within their areas.
