Travelling to College
Though many of our students live in the Scarborough area, many also choose to travel from Filey, Pickering, Malton, Bridlington, Driffield, Whitby and further afield. We do not want travel to be a barrier to you taking advantage of the many opportunities the College has to offer.
Bus Passes for September 2021
If you live in Bridlington, Whitby, Driffield or the Helmsley and Pickering area, you will need to apply to the College for a travel pass by completing an application:
For travel passes from other areas, you need to apply to NYCC by going to https://www.northyorks.gov.uk/school-and-college-transport
If you live 2.5 miles or more from College and are from a household where the income is less than £25,000 per annum, you may be entitled to either a bursary or financial support* towards the cost of travel to College. To see if you are eligible and for further information please go to the Finance page.
To get financial help with your transport you will need to make an application to the College’s Student Support Fund; if you are eligible then you may also receive assistance with meals, trips and other college expenses. The online application form for financial support is available to complete from August 2021.
Subsidised transport: “Pay no more than £12 a week”
Irrespective of household income, the College will subsidise bus transport costs, so that no student travelling to college has to pay more than £12 per week. [Based on lowest cost transport arrangements and subject to a maximum subsidy of £600 per year and you will need to provide evidence of you travel costs.]*
To apply for the travel subsidy you must complete an online financial support application form available from August 2021.
Even if you are awarded free or subsidised transport you must still make a separate online application for your bus pass.
