Staff travel options

We are committed to creating an environmentally friendly workplace, and ensuring that our employees can get to work safely and sustainably. 

As such, our Travel Plan not only details information about our car parking but also offers incentives for staff to avoid car travel, including:

  • Discounts on local public transport
  • Secure cycling faclities and showers on campus
  • Free equipment to help secure and maintina your bicycle.

myPTP Personalised Travel Plans

myPTP is a personalised travel plan tool for your commute that, in addition to options for cycling, walking and public transport, is also able to offer car-share choices (from the public Leicestershare database). It’s hosted by car-share specialists Liftshare and provided free to DMU staff via our membership of Smartgo Leicester.

How to use:

  • No registration is necessary; simple click on the link myPTP  and fill in the details of your journey.
  • Your data will be collected by Smartgo Leicester and your journey will be analysed.
  • After a 1-2 working days an email will be sent to you detailing the travel choices available to you for the journey including travel details, times, number of changes, petrol costs, CO2 emitted and calories.
  • Your data will be stored securely so that, if you wish, you can access your plan in the future. It will not be shared with any other parties.
