It can take up to two weeks for you to receive your bus pass (posted to your home address by Stagecoach). A travel subsidy (a one-off payment) will be available from Alton Campus for students who purchase an annual or termly Stagecoach ticket and are still enrolled on their course in their second term; details of this refund will be sent to parent/carers and students nearer the time.

Many of the public bus routes stop outside the Campus too.
