‘journey planner’. You should be able to find lots of information
Q2: I haven’t got access to the college website, but need

A: Call our Transport Department on 01926 318184 or email
they will be able to help.
Q3: Are the buses operated by Warwickshire College group?
A: No. The majority of buses are operated by Warwickshire 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 colleges which might
suit your needs.
Q4: How do I find out which bus I should get into college?
A: Each college has a transport page on our 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
If the operator is Stagecoach - visit the Warwickshire
College section on the stagecoach
website for bus prices and bus pass information or call 08456
If the operator is Warwickshire
County Council - visit their website or call Education
Transport on 01926 412929.
If the operator is a Warwickshire College Group mini
bus you can
buy online at the college's online shop or call 01926
Q6: What is the cost of a bus pass?
A: In 2015-16 the maximum cost for an annual bus pass is
£660 to £745, 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
In 2015-16 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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
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 colleges?
Yes there are buses that travel between Leamington and
Moreton Morrell, Leamington and Henley-in-Arden and Leamington and
These buses run from Leamington in the mornings and return again in
the late afternoons so students can catch their connecting buses
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.

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