Public transport

In line with principle 3, the University will only reimburse costs related to business travel and no personal benefit should be gained. As the use of season tickets and multiple journey tickets etc. are indistinguishable between business and personal use, these costs should not be reimbursed. However, the cost of a single journey paid using these cards can be reimbursed with supporting evidence such as an itemised statement from the multi-trip card provider or website printout confirming journey cost.

Examples of what can and should not be claimed:

Example Why   Reason
Oyster card top up Card ran out of credit prior to business journey Principle 3
Claim for London underground
journey paid with Oyster card
Cost of travel was cheaper than standard fare Principle 1
