The University promotes sustainable travel for students, staff and visitors. We have car share, Woo Bike share so you can have worry
The cycle to work scheme is offered by the University of Worcester to promote healthier journeys to work and reduce environmental pollution. The scheme is open to all University employees, on one year or longer contracts, providing a tax exemption to staff for the hire of cycles and cyclist safety equipment, up to the value of £1,000 and includes electric bikes (e-bikes).

Transport-related carbon emissions are the second largest contribution to the university’s total carbon footprint. Many travel carbon savings have already been achieved. The Travel Plan has identified many new activities to help us achieve the following targets.
Our transport targets include:
- 25% reduction absolute tCO2e emissions from staff and students’ commuting to University on a daily basis by 2020 from a baseline 2010/11 of 6,843 tCO2e
How are we going to achieve these targets?
- Implement automatic number plate recognition technology on key university sites by summer 2020.
- Lead Woo Bikes 2 year e-bike share scheme on campus and with Worcester City large employers ended February 2020
- Review student late night travel arrangements by February 2019
