TRAVELLING TO COLLEGE

Getting to Weston College is easy as all three of our main campuses have great transport links across the region. 

All of our campuses are easily accessible by road, train and bus. Weston-super-Mare’s main station is on the main line between Bristol and Exeter, and all three of our main sites are close to bus stops.

As part of our commitment to environmental sustainability, we are encouraging positive changes in the way we all travel to college every day. Promoting more ecological travel options will help to reduce environmental impacts and will benefit our staff, students and local communities.

On this page you will find how to get to College by bus (using local services and dedicated College coach services) and trains, how to buy tickets and much more ... 

UPDATE AUGUST 2022: You may have heard that some of the local bus services may no longer be running from October. Please be assured we are in discussions with the local council and First Bus to ensure this does not affect our learners. We will keep you all updated via email or our social media channels. Even if there is some impact to these services, please don’t worry as we have our own services with Bakers Dolphin that serve all these areas. Any queries, please contact schoolteam@weston.ac.uk who will be able to help or speak to our advisor via Live Chat below.

GETTING TO COLLEGE BY BUS

Our subsidised bus pass is one of the most generous in the area and offers substantial discounts on travel across the West of England. 

The pass is valid on all local First Group buses 24 hours a day during term times, and comes in either a five-day or seven-day variant. 

It doesn't have to be used solely for College-related travel - there are no restrictions on what kind of travel you can use it for. 

The College has continued to expand the number of direct coach services to the College. Direct routes from Bridgwater, Nailsea, Clevedon and Portishead mean that you can get to College even faster and more efficiently than normal bus routes. The College bus pass covers you for both the public and direct College services.

Weston College students have a choice of two bus operators in order to meet the needs and travel patterns of all students. We offer you the choice of two subsidised bus travel passes - which you choose will depend on where you are travelling from and whether you wish to use the service outside of college hours. Both passes are in the form of an app and allow you to track journeys, as well as the operators working with us to provide the most sustainable transport offer to our students.
