Travelling to College - For September 2024 entry

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 and have a number of bus services to assist run by both the College and NYCC.

How to apply for Bus Passes

All students both new and returning will receive a text at the end of July with a link for them to complete on online application form. An email will then be sent to both student and parent confirming their application has been received and details of the cost and how to pay the deposit and the payment terms. Please download the two documents for more detailed information and the bus timetables.

Subsidised Transport - Pay no more than £14.50 a week

Irrespective of household income, the College will subsidise bus transport costs, so that no student has to pay more than £14.50 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 your travel costs.]

To apply for the travel subsidy, you must complete Student Financial Support online application form and complete the travel only section
