Increasing the number of staff using more sustainable methods of transport to and from work can cut your car park requirements, improve the health of your employees and help salaries go further. It also contributes to demonstrating your commitment to improving the local environment. All current offers are below along with annual membership prices.

    • "Arriva welcome the SmartGo initiative which provides opportunities to promote bus travel. We already work very closely with a small number of key employers and look forward to extending that type of relationship with companies across the city. Arriva offers great value bus travel and that value is increased for staff of companies that sign up to SmartGo."

      Linsey Frostick, Regional Marketing Manager, Arriva

    • "SmartGo Leicester communicates with their partners and members effectively and efficiently, allowing us to become involved in their on-going activity."

      Jayne Moyses Head of Sales & Customer Relations, East Midlands Trains (Stagecoach)

    • "SmartGo Leicester offers our staff and students discounted travel and provides a strong network of travel stakeholders in the city to share resources, ideas and strength to secure further progress towards sustainable travel."

      Sandra Lee, University of Leicester

    • "The partnership with Go Travel Solutions offers the benefit of a range of travel incentives through SmartGo, travel survey management and evaluation, practical advice to enhance sustainable travel and secured engagement of other public and private sector partners for the long term benefit of local transport"

      Jo Tallack General Manager, Highcross Leicester (part of Hammerson)

    • "The University Hospitals of Leicester can offer staff a wide range of discounted travel options through SmartGo Leicester that was previously not available."

      Ruth Ward Travelwise Manager, University Hospitals of Leicester

    • "East Midlands Trains has a great working relationship with SmartGo and is very keen to promote all opportunities to increase travel by train that this partnership strives to achieve."

      Lawrence Bowman Commercial Director – East Midlands Trains

    • "Highcross is committed to encouraging our teams and customers to use sustainable transport and SmartGo Leicester is an excellent tool and support network."

      Jo Tallack, General Manager, Highcross Leicester (part of Hammerson)

    • "SmartGo has provided invaluable help over the years to enable us to develop a wide range of workplace travel solutions that not only enhance the broad range of benefits we give to our staff, it also generates wider business benefits in reducing travel costs, improving the health and well-being of our staff and helping us to achieve our carbon reduction targets"

      Alastair Hamilton, Partner at Pick Everard

    • "The SmartGo programme has provided a wide range of travel benefits to staff at DMU. We know that one size doesn’t fit all in relation to travel choices and SmartGo are able to provide a variety of travel discounts and incentives which suit the requirements of a great many number of staff. SmartGo is our first port of call for discounts and incentives for staff travel."

      Karl Letten PIEMA, Environmental & Sustainability Officer, De Montfort University 

    • "SmartGo has really helped boost our efforts to encourage staff to use sustainable transport, particularly buses. Previously, we had separate relationships with travel providers and communicating opportunities to employees could be ineffective and time-consuming.

      Being able to consolidate everything with the SmartGo platform has saved us a lot of time and enables us to simply direct staff to a single place. Plus, they can now access an even better range of discounts too!"

      Cory Laywood, Service Manager, Leicester City Council

    • "With SmartGo, we can provide transport incentives to shopping centre staff and our retailers without the need for the individual to arrange separately. The large discounts available on public transport are particularly helpful as retailers can offer as part of the incentive package to work at Highcross which is a great differentiator In the last year alone, the value of SmartGo offer requests by Highcross staff represent a saving of more than 11 times the annual membership fee! 

      Jo Tallack, General Manager, Highcross Leicester

    • "“The offers available to staff through membership of SmartGo have been supported by a range of infrastructure developments such as the installation of bike racks and new showers to encourage cycling to work, and accommodating charging points for the increasing adoption of electric vehicles, particularly through the Nissan LEAF offer, which many staff took up."

      Sandra Lee, Sustainability Manager, University of Leicester
