Travel Advisor Service – now available

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, but is available to all staff.

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

  • Complete a brief survey at Travel Advisor Session Booking Form to provide a bit of information about yourself and your travel to work, and your preference regarding the days/times 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
