What happens next?

First we will assess your application to ensure that you meet the listed criteria. If you are eligible for a subsidised pass and have made the correct payment then we will produce a bus pass for you or order one on your behalf from the appropriate bus company.  If we have received your application form and payment in good time, then you should be able to collect your pass from the first day of College term in September. You will need to collect your pass in person; it cannot be issued to somebody else on your behalf.

Additional Financial Support for Travel Costs

In addition to the College’s Subsidised Bus Travel Schemes, if you are on a low income and will have difficulty paying for subsidised travel you can also apply to the 16- 18 Bursary Fund or Discretionary Learner Support / Advanced Learner Loan Bursary Fund (depending on your age) if you would like us to assess your income.  To be eligible for this type of funding students need to have an annual household income below £25,000; if you qualify then it is likely that the College can fund towards a bus pass for you in full or pay you a significant amount towards the cost of rail travel.  In the past year the College has been able to assist a significant number of full time learners with cost of bus passes to travel to College so it is well worth applying for financial support if the cost of travel will be a barrier to you.
