Whether this is your first year at college or you are an expert traveller, we’re providing everything you need to know about student travel to your college destination.

We know that as a student, the journey is just as important as the destination. With so many choices – mum, dad, train, walking, and the bus!, we know that it is a difficult decision to make.

Students choose their travel on convenience, affordability and comfort. We have all three! And, whether you are leaving home for the first time or you are getting back into College life, we’d love to be there for you!

Connecting Students, Connecting Destinations:

With over 100 years’ experience and kind bus drivers (!), we understand that students that when students are leaving home for the first time, you need reassurance. From knowing if the bus stop is actually in the spot it’s supposed to be or the bus is about to arrive.

If you are travelling with us for the first time or coming back after a relaxing summer, you may like to know about our features and benefits!

Your Personalised College Page

Every college we travel to has its own page for you to learn more about what is available to you. We have even visualised your journey for you, so that you don’t have to worry about which bus stops to get on at or where to get off!
