Ordering your bus/train pass (without financial support)

Bus Passes:
All Full Time students are eligible to purchase an online discounted student bus pass via the First Group and Stagecoach websites. The student pass will allow you to travel for a much cheaper cost. Additional financial help (a partial refund) towards online bus passes may be available to Full Time students (not including Higher Education courses) who are aged 16-19 and live in certain postcode areas and are still enrolled on their course of study at the end of the first full term. This is called a ‘Travel Subsidy’; if you are eligible for this, the College will contact you near the end of the Autumn Term.

Train Passes:
Full Time students who wish to travel by train, may apply for a termly rail pass. The train pass will be at a discounted price (compared to standard priced fares). A further reduction to the cost, will be made by the college towards certain rail passes.
