College Coaches

The College coaches provide transport from areas where public bus services are limited.

The charge for the use of College transport during this year (2019/20) will be 9 monthly payments of £77.00 by bank/building society standing order commencing in September 2019 and concluding in May 2020.

In the case of financial hardship, further assistance may be available from the 16 - 19 Bursary.

Students and the College Transport

Students and the College Transport

In order to increase security and to avoid drivers being pressurised to accept travellers without passes, we are adopting the practice used by many other Colleges, that passes must be shown for all travel. Students unable to show a college photo id travel pass will not be allowed to board, as would happen on public transport. There will be no exceptions to the rule "NO PASS MEANS NO TRAVEL."

The College is open for students on 185 days in an academic year and we provide all coaches everyday, and so the charges are based on this. Places are offered on the understanding that students will use the service for the full year. However, if circumstances should change, i.e. moving house, please contact the Transport Officer in writing. Cancellation of payment simply to allow for a change of mode of transport cannot be accepted.

Allocation of Places on College Transport:

If demand for College Transport is higher than the places available, we will apply agreed admissions criteria to prioritise and the decisions of the College will be final in interpreting and applying these criteria. The right is reserved to refuse, or withdraw, a place for disciplinary or other reasons.

How to Apply for a Transport Place:
