CRC College Contract Buses
We run our own contract bus service for our full-time students. The service picks up from different towns and villages in Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire and Suffolk. Click here to see the current timetable. You can see the bus routes here.
All routes are timed to arrive at the College prior to 08:45 hours and depart at 16:15 hours after lessons finish. The bus service will operate during term time only.
The cost of the College Bus Pass remains at £495.00 for the 2017/18 academic year. This can be paid either in full or up to 10 instalments. (a deposit and completed Direct Debit form is required)
For those on Apprenticeship schemes only attending one day per week, the cost is £165.00 payable in full in advance.

We actively encourage our students and staff to choose a green method of transport when travelling to college. We have plenty of cycle racks available including covered spaces.
A cycle allowance is available to students in Cambridgeshire who are entitled to subsidised transport but choose to cycle instead. This is £40 per term, payable in arrears and claimed on a term by term basis. Retrospective payment can only be considered for the current academic year. Claim forms are available from Room C111 or from the Local Authority Education Transport team, and need to be returned to Cambridgeshire County Council.
