Working at Newcastle

Commuting

Commuting

While Newcastle is the hub of activity in the North East, it is less congested than most large cities.

With most of the city lying within one square mile, it's easy to get around.

Many residential areas are within easy walking distance of the University, or on Metro or bus routes.

Local travel

The local authority has a policy of reducing the number of car journeys into the city.

The University is also committed to helping staff leave their cars outside the city. It encourages alternatives such as public transport, walking, cycling and car sharing.

Staff discounted travel scheme

The University has negotiated discounted season tickets on public transport.

The Metro makes commuting quick and efficient. Haymarket Metro Station is just over the road from the University campus.

Two of the main bus stations are also within five minutes of the main University campus.

Cycle to work scheme

Employees lease from the University a bike and safety equipment of their choice. Cycle lockers and changing facilities are also provided.

On-campus parking

There is limited car parking on campus. It's priced in line with local, public parking provision.

Tyne and Wear Metro provides an excellent transport link to the University, with stops in the city centre and further afield.
