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 received when you attended Getting Ready Day.  If you did 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:

  • Buy your ticket online
  • Select 'Student Tickets' from the menu options
  • Select either of the 'Farnborough 6th Form' ticket options from the list

When ordering you will need to have your College ID number to hand (your log in will be the last 5 digits). 

Information about routes and prices is available here.

 

Travel by train

College is well served for travel by rail with three stations within walking distance; Farnborough Main, Farnborough North and Frimley.

**New for 2019 16-17 Railcard**

The Department of Transport have launched a new railcard which allows 50% discount on rail travel for 16 and 17 year olds. The card will cost £30 and can be purchased here. It will be valid for tickets from 2 September 2019 and will be available as a card or in a digital format.

If you would prefer not to wait for the above railcard option, you can take advantage of the favourable rates agreed for all our students and flexible payments options offered through the College.
