The service picks up from different towns and villages in Cambridgeshire, Huntingdon, Essex, Hertfordshire, Peterborough and Suffolk. Click here for the relevant campus timetable:

The college bus pass is £495 for the 2020/21 academic year.  This can be paid either in full or by instalments – a deposit of £75 by debit/credit card and 4 instalments of £105 each by Direct Debit. For those on Apprenticeship schemes only attending one day per week, the price is £185 payable in full.
