The proposed route is detailed below but this will be dependent on final student numbers.

The cost of this service will be £200 per term and payment needs to be made online at the time of booking.  Places on this service are not guaranteed until payment has been received by the College and duly acknowledged.  Payment can either be made on a termly basis or for all three terms.  The deadline for booking a place for the Autumn term is Friday 30th August 2019 to enable us to finalise the route before the start of next term. 


You'll be pleased to know that our College is just a short walk from Alton train station and the town centre. Many of the public buses stop right outside our College too, and services run throughout the academic term. 

Our address is Old Odiham Road, Alton, Hampshire GU34 2LX.

We would advise you to purchase your train ticket or bus pass as early as possible please. It can take 7 - 10 working days for train tickets to arrive at College (ready for collection on the first day of term) and up to two weeks for you to receive your bus pass (posted to your home address by Stagecoach).
