Fal Mussel Card Uni
The Fal Mussel Card Uni is an innovative new travel card available exclusively to students and staff at Falmouth University, University of Exeter, FXU & FX Plus.
Launched in September 2014, the card gives unlimited travel between the two university campuses in Falmouth and Penryn, with services every 15 minutes in term time. That’s not all, it also gives hop-on hop-off travel around the Fal River and Cornwall on an integrated network of ferries, buses and trains (see map over).
The card and travel services it covers are being supplied by First Fal River, a partnership formed between First Kernow, (a division of the global First Group PLC) and local, family owned, Fal River. With a commercial worth of more than £2,600 (nearly 6 times the price) the card represents extremely good value and gives students and staff a real alternative to bringing a car to university. FalRiver also works closely with businesses across Cornwall, card holders will be offered discounts at a wide range of local attractions, bars, shops, cafés and activity providers. Students can pay the one off £440 at the start of the academic year or in three instalments, at the start of each term: £200 term 1; £150 term 2; £100 term 3. Staff can also pay a one off sum of £440 or choose to pay monthly with deductions from their salary.
