Travelling to College | Weston College

Travelling to College

Getting to Weston College is easy as all three of our main campuses have great transport links across the region. 

All of our campuses are easily accessible by road, train and bus. Weston-super-Mare’s main station is on the main line between Bristol and Exeter, and all three of our main sites are close to bus stops.

As part of our commitment to environmental sustainability, we are encouraging positive changes in the way we all travel to college every day. Promoting more ecological travel options will help to reduce environmental impacts and will benefit our staff, students and local communities.

What can you do?

Students and staff can help to make a real difference by making more sustainable transport decisions.

Car diet

We’re not saying you need to stop driving completely! Try leaving your car at home a few days a week or maybe park further away and walk the rest of the journey to reduce your daily carbon footprint.

Public transport 

59% of our students currently use public transport. Scroll down to read more about our subsidised transport options for students as well as bus timetables.

Walking

If you live close to your campus, walking to college can help to clear your mind and relax as you increase your step count. Walking as a group also makes for safer travel and a chance to be more social!

Cycling

You’ll be able to secure your bike using the cycle racks which are available at all three of our main campuses. As our sites are easily accessible by road, you shouldn’t have any problems if you choose to use your bike to get here. Visit the Better By Bike website for useful information about cycling in the West and a useful Cycle Planner tool for preparing your route.

Sharing is Caring

Reduce the number of cars on the road, maximise the number of parking spaces! Lift sharing is one of the best ways for students and staff to reduce their carbon footprint. Be more social, save money and reduce stress from your morning routine. Staff are invited to sign up and use the Join My Journey app. This is a free to use journey and car sharing portal where colleagues can network and arrange lift shares to reduce the number of cars on the road.

Getting to College by bus...

Weston College bus pass

 

Our subsidised bus pass is one of the most generous in the area and offers substantial discounts on travel across the West of England. 

The pass is valid on all local First Group buses 24 hours a day during term times, and comes in either a five-day or seven-day variant. 

It doesn't have to be used solely for College-related travel - there are no restrictions on what kind of travel you can use it for. 

The College has continued to expand the number of direct coach services to the College. Direct routes from Bridgwater, Nailsea, Clevedon and Portishead mean that you can get to College even faster and more efficiently than normal bus routes. The College bus pass covers you for both the public and direct College services.
