Travel Discount Scheme – First Bus Commuter Travel Club

The University of Glasgow in partnership with First Bus Glasgow, provide staff with discounted bus travel in Glasgow and its surrounding areas.

How it works

Staff will benefit from a 10% discount off the monthly mticket fare which will be locked in for a full year once signed up for the scheme.

The scheme allows employees to benefit from unlimited bus travel on First Bus services in their chosen zone, meaning you can use services for work or leisure.  

Signing up to the scheme is done online and is quick and easy to do with payment made directly to First Bus via a monthly Direct Debit.

By using the First Bus app, the ticket will be downloaded directly onto your smartphone automatically every month.


In order to benefit you must apply to join the Commuter Travel Club as a staff member of the University of Glasgow.  All applicants must have a University of Glasgow email address with the domain in order to sign up.

Staff member

You must be a salaried member of the University of Glasgow staff, or any of its wholly owned subsidiaries, with a staff number, i.e. have a contract of employment issued from Human Resources.


You must have a contract of employment that covers the full period of the season ticket.
