Transport Mutual Credit Union offers you the option of making weekly, fortnightly or monthly payments on your home loan. As with most banks, interest is calculated daily on your remaining principal; this means that any payment you make before your monthly due date will reduce your principal, and thus reduce the amount of interest you have to pay.
Transport Mutual Credit Union allows extra repayments on its variable interest home loans. You can also make lump sum repayments at any time, and any extra payments are available for redraw (withdrawal from your loan) at no cost if you change your mind. Terms and conditions apply; contact your lender for details.

Transport Mutual Credit Union is an Australian credit union based in Sydney, serving customers around the nation. It was founded in 1964 by and for employees of the Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA), who initially named it the Main Roads Staff Credit Union. The credit union changed its name to the RTA Staff Credit Union in 1989, before transitioning to its current name in 2011, with both rebrands prompted by changes to the name and structure of the New South Wales government’s transport department.
Initially founded to serve the aforementioned employees of the NSW government transport department, including rail, bus and ferry employees, membership to Transport Mutual Credit Union is now open to all Australians regardless of job or background. Becoming a member of Transport Mutual Credit Union costs just $10, with all profits being channelled back into the union’s products and services.
Certain Transport Mutual Credit Union home loans received a 5-Star Rating from Canstar in our March 2017 Star Ratings; see our home loans comparison pages for details.
