Q1: I need advice on transport to college, what should I do?

A: In the first instance, go to www.warwickshire.ac.uk/transport
These web pages detail the transport options for each centre with links to bus / rail enquiries and there’s also a useful ‘journey planner’. You should be able to find lots of information here.

 

Q2: I haven’t got access to the college website, but need advice on transport, what can I do?

A: Call our Transport Department on 01926 318184 or email transport@warkscol.ac.uk and they will be able to help.

 

Q3: Are the buses operated by Warwickshire College?

A: No. The majority of buses are operated by Warwickshire County Council, Worcestershire County Council or Stagecoach. However, the college does operate some routes where there is a viable specific demand. Other bus/rail operators may have routes that run near to the college centres which might suit your needs.

 

Q4: How do I find out which bus I should get into college?

A: Each centre has a transport page on the college’s website; these pages have a list of ‘bus stop’ locations. If you click on the number, e.g. 516, a pop-up appears with the contact details of where to obtain a bus pass and get more information.

 

Q5: How do I apply for a bus pass?

This will depend on where you live, but our college website will indicate which operator will issue your pass. Here’s how you can find out:

If the operator is Stagecoach - visit the Warwickshire College section on the stagecoach website for bus prices and bus pass information or call 08456 001 314.

 

If the operator is Warwickshire County Council - visit their website or call Education Transport on 01926 742059 (for bus pass applications) or 01926 412929 (for routes).

 

If the operator is Worcestershire County Council - visit their website or call 01905 765765.

 

If the operator is a Warwickshire College mini bus you can buy online at the college's online shop or call 01926 318184.

 

Q6: What is the cost of a bus pass?

A: In 2014-15 the maximum cost for an annual bus pass is £660 to £727, however this cost varies depending on where you live and the type of bus pass you require. You can buy a pass for the whole term or sometimes you can pay daily, weekly or monthly - although this is usually only on the Stagecoach routes.

 

Q7: Is there any financial help available for transport costs?

In 2014-15 there is financial support that is available through the college for low income families and/or on certain benefits. This can provide a reduction. Full details can be found here or you can call Student Services on 01926 318080 or email advice@warkscol.ac.uk for further advice and to apply.

If you are applying for a Warwickshire County Council (WCC) bus pass we would ask that you bring your completed WCC application form to Student Services at the college, before approaching WCC, as we will be able to assess the best way to maximise the financial support available to you.

 

Q8: Can I find detailed bus routes on the college website?

A: No, generally not - although the college mini bus routes will be listed on our website. County Council buses may have their routes on their website or you can call the relevant County Council – see Question 5 for contact details. Stagecoach public routes should be available from their website.

 

Q9: Are there any buses that travel between centres?

Yes there are buses that travel between Leamington and Moreton Morrell, Leamington and Henley-in-Arden and Leamington and Trident, Warwick.


These buses run from Leamington in the mornings and return again in the late afternoons so students can catch their connecting buses home.

 

If you have a bus pass these routes are included in the price of the pass, but you can also pay daily. However, the Leamington to Trident, Warwick bus is free of charge.

 

Times of intercampus buses

 

Q10: I am studying on a part-time course and I’m over 19, what transport is available to me?

A: Some bus services may be restricted to school/college age students, so once you have found a bus route you’d like to use you should look at the county council websites to see if you are eligible for a pass. If you’re not successful with them please call the Transport Department at Warwickshire College on 01926 318184.

 

Public buses can also be used, but will only go directly to centres in the mornings and in the afternoons after lectures have finished.
