The Trust Travelscheme has been set up to enable you to purchase an annual season ticket for travel on public transport.
The Trust purchases an annual travel pass on your behalf and the cost of the travel pass is then deducted in 12 affordable monthly instalments from your salary through payroll deduction.
For staff at Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals Trust only we have increased the discount for travel passes by a further 30% until September 2022. Please note that this will appear on your payslip as a normal deduction, with the 30% additional discount appearing as a refund.
For example, if you have a Metro pass, you currently pay £52.50 which will be deducted as normal, but a refund of £15.75 will also appear on your payslip.
Prices will revert to the normal deduction from October onwards.
If you have any questions about this, please do just get in touch.

If you should lose your travel pass please contact us to obtain a replacement (if appplicable)
You will have to pay for a travel ticket, which is non refundable until we can arrange for a re-issue.
It’s easy to collect your pass, just select your collection point on your application form. Your pass will be available to collect around the 19th to the 21st of the month (should the 20th or 21st fall on a weekend then collection will be the Friday before). We do not notify that you pass is available to collect, just pop along to collect.
When it’s time to renew your annual pass simply fill out an application form online. The deadline for receipt of application forms is always 12:00 noon on the 1st of the month. Please note that you do not need to reapply each month.
If you have a Go North East or Arriva pass please retain your current card as this will be upload electronically on to your existing pass for you.
If you wish to return a pass you must notify the Staff Benefits team as soon as possible. You must return your pass by 12:00 noon on the 14th of the month (should the 14th fall on a weekend then the Friday before). A £20 cancellation fee will also apply. Should you wish to return your pass in December please contact our office as the date is brought forward due to early payroll.
