Bus passes can be used within the dates stated on the Stagecoach website or First Bus app at the time of purchase, and within the areas specified. All bus passes can be used in the evenings and at weekends within the named zone.
Train passes can be used 7 days a week within the named train stations and dates.
If you order a termly bus/train pass, you will need to remember to order a pass each term.
All bus passes must be used with your Student ID card and train passes must be used with your photocard. Drivers will confiscate any pass that is being used without the appropriate ID card or being used out of the specified dates and areas on the ticket. Misuse of any pass may result in the student being withdrawn from the Travel Scheme.
If you withdraw from your course and your pass was purchased by the College, the pass will remain the property of the College and will need to be handed into the Student Travel & Support Office.
If you purchase your own pass and you withdraw, you may contact the bus/train company direct to see if you can get a partial refund.
Havant or South Downs Campus students – please click here to see what areas the bus passes are valid in and the dates that annual passes can be used.
Alton Campus students – the Stagecoach GOLD ticket is valid for use on all Stagecoach buses in Hampshire, Surrey, West Sussex, West Berkshire, Wiltshire and Brighton.
Should you wish to use your bus pass in other areas you may wish to upgrade your bus pass. For example, if you live in Waterlooville you will have a Waterlooville Zone bus pass and you may wish to upgrade your bus pass so you can use it in other areas, such as Portsmouth (which can be useful if you have a part time job elsewhere).
The cost you need to pay for the upgrade will depend on which bus pass you already have. Please speak to one of the Student Travel & Support advisers for assistance with this.
