2022-23 academic year: updated information on the college-run coaches will be available from May/June 2022.
Due to the current pandemic the following guidelines will need to be adhered to whilst travelling on the college-run coaches:
- Face coverings to be worn at all times unless exempt (evidence will need to shown), students failing to do this will be refused travel and incur a £5 fine.
- Hands sanitised upon boarding and disembarking the vehicle.
- Students boarding the coach first will need to make their way to the back of the coach and find a seat. Students boarding towards the end will need to sit at the front of the coach. Please sit in the same seat for all journeys.
- The consumption of food will not be permitted on the coach. If a student needs to take a drink or to take medication whilst travelling please do so quickly and be mindful of others.
2021-2022 College Coach Arrangements
Please note that college coach access is offered on a first come, first served basis and is subject to seat availability and sufficient sales to ensure the route's viability.
Please note: coach drivers will only stop at pick up destinations where students are registered, therefore not all stops will be used. Students need to be waiting at their stop at least 10 minutes before their departure time and make themselves visible to the driver. If the coach is delayed, students can call the coach companies traffic helpline for an estimated time of arrival (please see below for relevant telephone numbers).
The cost of the college coach:
We strongly advise students arrive at their bus stop at least ten minutes prior to bus departure times in the morning.
Please complete the online college-run coach application form and make payment to secure a space on the college-run coach. Both payment and online application must be made to secure a space on the coach. An e-receipt will then be issued to you at the earliest convenience.
For links to the online applications please email your enquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org. If the coach is full please email your interest and ask to be added to the waiting list.
Students must ensure they have their college coach pass printed at the bottom of their student ID card. Students will not be allowed entry on to the college coach without a valid pass. All students must have their lanyard/college ID card whilst at college, if you have lost yours you must buy a new one from Deanfield Reception (£3.00) or you will not be allowed on site.
