By bus - discounted bus travel
To help you get to College we offer our full-time students a substantial discount on bus travel. The £55 per term pass can be used on any local First Bus routes for seven days of the week, 24 hours per day, during term-time. You can also use your pass to travel to and from work experience placements.
Bus routes to Knightstone and University Campus.
In order for you to be able to easily access either our Knightstone Campus or our University Campus, we have been working very closely with First Bus. This will help to ensure we have a comprehensive bus service covering both campuses.
This enables the majority of our full-time students to travel easily to either of our campuses from across the region on a First Bus. This may be a dedicated bus service or by using the normal bus route depending on where you live. There are frequent buses from within the Weston area, as well as direct buses from Bath, Bristol, Clevedon, Nailsea, Portishead, Burnham-on-Sea, Wells, Bridgwater and the surrounding areas. This gives you the flexibility to come and go to suit your study needs.
First Bus operates a wide range of network services throughout North Somerset, Somerset, Gloucester, Wiltshire and within the Bristol area. Bus times and other service information can be obtained from Travel Line on 0871 2002233 or at www.traveline.org.uk. In addition to this, extra services will operate across the town from Worle, directly to the University Campus.
