Travel to College

There are several transport options to get to College.  Some providers offer special rates for students travelling by bus or train.  This page gives information about the most popular routes, but it is important that you research your proposed route to ensure that you get the best value. 

Transport application forms are available for first year students at the back of your Getting Ready booklet which you will receive when you attend Getting Ready Day.  If you do not attend or are a second year student, you can get an application form from Student Services.

 

Travel by bus

Stagecoach bus passes are available at a discounted rate.  They can also be used outside of College hours and in the holidays. 

You can buy your passes online from here using the following steps:

When ordering, you will need to have your College ID number to hand (your log in will be the last five digits).
