Public Bus Services

St Brendan's Sixth Form College is located on Broomhill Road, close to the A4 between Bristol and Bath.

Public Transport

The College has been working closely with First Bus, which has resulted in all St Brendan's students having the option of discounted student tickets, allowing unlimited travel 7 days per week. These are available daily, weekly, monthly, termly or annually from First.

All tickets can be purchased via the First Bus M Ticket app and they are discounted for St Brendan's students. Most students currently make their way to and from the College by public transport, with parents meeting the cost of travel. The proportion of students using public transport has risen sharply over the last few years due to improved services, flexibility of travel times and value for money.
