Discounted bus travel
University of Cumbria students can get discounted season tickets for bus travel in Carlisle and Lancaster. For more details of the offer for each city, see the Unirider section of the Stagecoach website. Scroll down to see details for Carlisle; note that for Lancaster the Stagecoach website still refers to the University of Cumbria as ‘St Martin’s College’.
Lancaster and Carlisle are major stations stops on the West Coast mainline as well as being connected to a range of local rail networks.
With the support of Cycling England and Lancaster City Council, the university has put in place a range of initiatives to support and encourage cycling at the Lancaster campus, including a low cost cycle loan scheme for students. All university sites have cycle parking facilities. If you are unsure where they are, please ask at the site reception.
Active Travel Forum
The university has an active travel discussion forum on Blackboard, our Virtual Learning Environment. This is open to all students and staff. Once logged in to Blackboard, click the ‘Community’ tab and then look at ‘Active Travel’ under the heading ‘Institution Discussion Boards’.
