The University is committed to reducing atmospheric pollution by encouraging more sustainable travel alternatives to, from and between University sites and on University business.
To support this the University has introduced:
- A salary sacrifice scheme for staff which provides an Income tax and National Insurance efficient way to pay towards the hire of a bicycle and associated safety equipment for 12 months (Cycle scheme).
- A cycle hire scheme which provides c.100 hire bikes throughout the Stirling Area including approximately 30 bikes at three locations on Campus and various other locations throughout the Stirling Area. Additionally, the University has funded a corporate subscription with Nextbike which allows staff and students free use of the scheme and free rental of a bike for the first 1 hour of every ride (Cycle Hire (Nextbike)).
