Main site (Plumpton BN7 3AE)
We run an extensive bus service just for Plumpton College students. New for this academic year we have signed up with CoachHire to improve our routes, click here for more information including timetables and ticketing.
We try to make getting to college as affordable as possible and each year the college subsidises around 50% of the cost of all tickets. In order to ensure that we can offer a sustainable travel network and be able to arrange the transport with a degree of certainty we have moved away from selling 10 journey tickets and have expanded the basis on which termly tickets can be bought. We now offer tickets in half termly blocks but have set the pricing structure to reflect the number of full days per week that you expect to travel. Please note that due to the way in which the costs of travel is incurred by the college we cannot offer half day tickets.
Please note: 10 journey tickets from the last academic year (2018/2019) will not be valid for travel. We can however provide a refund for any unused tickets purchased in term 3 of last year.
Students in receipt of bursaries will have the prices below adjusted according to their bursary awards.
Throughout the next academic year we will be regularly reviewing the quality of the service and always appreciate your support and feedback to help optimise our transport provision.
