Better benefits for the NHS.
Discounted bus travel for NHS staff across Scotland to encourage modal shift to bus
There were so many different local ticket schemes in Scotland for NHS staff that made it complicated to understand and hard for people to find and access. Stagecoach and NHS Staff Benefits were looking for a simpler solution, suitable right across Scotland.
Using Stagecoach’s Corporate Ticketing Application and the NHS Staff Benefits portal, all NHS staff across Scotland can get discounted bus travel.
There is no complicated paperwork to fill in, staff simply sign up via a secure and unique link so they can buy weekly, monthly or even annual tickets, saving 10% on standard fares.
This new app based ticketing option for all NHS staff in Scotland is just an initial solution that we’re confident will lead to increased local partnership working with NHS boards on network planning and also to find bespoke travel solutions.
Making it easier for people to switch to getting the bus to work
Working in partnership to find travel solutions for staff, patients and hospital visitors
Discounted travel is available to all 140,000 NHS staff across Scotland
To help deliver the environmental targets set by the Scottish Government, and the green travel plans of employers, Stagecoach is working with employers large and small to find corporate ticketing solutions driven by the latest technology so people in all of our communities can make a sustainable transport choice and switch to bus. Working with the NHS in Scotland we have been able to tailor a solution to their needs and it's encouraging to see the great take up of this offer.
