Travel Advisor Service

After working from home for the past year or more, you might be unsure about what your travel options are as the University starts to think about opening up its doors again to staff. The Travel Advisors can help you find out what's changed since you last travelled to work, including how to keep active by walking and cycling as part of your commute.

This new service has been introduced by the University to help staff explore the alternative travel options that might be available to them, perhaps looking for a commute that is healthier, greener, faster or cheaper than previous arrangements. The service would be particularly useful if you're a relatively recent or new starter who has yet to venture into the workplace.

To arrange a conversation with a Travel Advisor, using MS Teams:

  • Email
  • You'll be asked to complete a brief 'pre-conversation' form to provide a bit of information about yourself and your travel to work, and be asked to suggest some days/times of day when you're available for a session
  • You'll be matched with a Travel Advisor and they will send you an invite for a Teams call
  • You'll have a conversation with your Travel Advisor via Teams. They'll use the call to understand more about you and your travel to work, and together you'll explore your travel options
  • Following the call your Travel Advisor will pull together some personalised information to help support you in trying out the options identified
  • They will follow up with you on a couple of occasions to see how you are getting on or if you need any further support, and to find out what you thought of the service

The travel Advisor service will be available to staff from early June.

Travel for work and study at the Univeristy of Cambridge

Every day a high number of journeys into and around Cambridge are made by staff, students and visitors. The University’s sites are dispersed across the city and many of us have to travel between sites during the working day. The University wants to support sustainable modes of transport and to encourage staff to reduce the number of car journeys into Cambridge in order to improve congestion and minimise our environmental impact from transport. On these pages you can find out:

  • Information about getting into and around Cambridge
  • What the University is doing to minimise the our environmental footprint from transport and improve air quality in Cambridge
  • What the University is doing to support travel to and between the University sites for all staff, students and visitors
