Travelling by bus

All college buses drop off and pick up from the campus and the return journeys follow the same routes as the inward journey. Exact pick-up points, routes and arrival/departure times for September 2024 will be published at the end of April 2024 and may vary from previous years. Pick- up points are carefully considered by the college, and we are not able to alter or add stops in that academic year. Current routes are constantly reviewed with new routes developed for the following year if required; we would advise you to get in touch and let us know where you will be travelling from so, we can assess your individual needs. Whatever your transport queries, we will try to help wherever possible.

Please note that this timetable is subject to change, ensure you check the timings for your pick- up point again at the beginning of September.

Reaseheath will be subsidising transport fees by over £1.5 million to help ensure that the cost of travel remains as small as possible and that we continue to offer a cost effective, safe and comfortable method of travel to and from campus.
