Leeds Met currently offers three discounted travel pass schemes for staff: Metrocard, Firstbus and Northern Rail. If you are unsure about which ticket to choose contact email@example.com or call 26019.
MetroCard is a pre-paid travelcard, which gives virtually unlimited travel on public transport in West Yorkshire; it is not restricted to the services of any one operator.
The Annual MetroCard is available as a bus only card (any bus operator) or bus plus rail (choice of zones) within West Yorkshire.
Choose a Metrocard if you use both buses and trains, or different bus companies for your journey to work.
A Metrocard is available for commuting from Harrogate (zone 6) or Skipton (zone 7) but the 15% discount is not available for these zones. If you commute from these stations, the Northern Rail corporate ticket scheme may be more suitable.
Costs are deducted from your salary and spread over the year. Details can be found here.
Travel on all First Buses in West Yorkshire.
Get a First Bus pass if you only use First bus services to travel to work. If you travel by train or other bus companies for your journey to work, a Metrocard, or a season ticket for another operator, might be more suitable.
To find out whether First Buses operate on your route to work, plan your commute at www.transportdirect.info
