Travelling to College

Transport Options to College

There are lots of ways to get to both of our campuses, in Cambridge and Huntingdon, whether you’re travelling by foot, bike, bus, car or train; we’re within reach across the region.

College Bus

We run our own contract bus service for our full-time students and apprentices at both our Cambridge and Huntingdon campuses. The service picks up from different towns and villages in Cambridgeshire, Huntingdon, Essex, Hertfordshire, Peterborough and Suffolk. Click here for the relevant campus timetable:

Please ensure you check the timetable near to the time you plan to travel. This will ensure you are aware of any changes to the timetable.

The college bus pass is £550 for the 2022/23 academic year. An Early Bird rate of £495 is available for those paying by 31st August 2022. This can be paid either in full or by instalments. For Early Bird tickets, there is a deposit of £135 and 3 instalments of £120 each via Direct Debit. For those on Apprenticeship schemes, please contact  with details of your student number, student name and the course you are studying. The price will be £185 payable in full.

Tickets are now purchased via ShuttleID making it easier than ever for students to purchase bus tickets. ShuttleID has numerous features and benefits including:
