Face masks or coverings must be worn at all times on the college-run coaches. If you aren't wearing one you won't be allowed onto the coach and if you remove your mask during the journey you will be fined £5.
Applications for the 2020-21 academic year are now available.
OX2 - B480 Road Closure:
From Tuesday 1 September – Monday 9 November, Thames Water will be carrying out essential works on the B480. The road will be closed from Chalgrove to Watlington and unfortunately this will affect our OX2 service.
08.09.2020: the road closure was enforce this morning and the OX2 had to follow a diversion. Whilst there is uncertainty surrounding this road closure the stop at Emmington will not be in service to allow extra time in getting to College. All stops at Watlington will be observed but it is likely that the OX2 service will still experience a slight delay arriving at College in the morning.
2020/2021 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 running more than 15 minutes late, students can call the coach companies traffic helpline for an estimated time of arrival (please see below for relevant telephone numbers).
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.
Applications for the 2020-21 academic year are now available. Please complete the form below for the college-run coach you would like to apply for. Payment must be made after the form has been completed to secure a seat.
Please note: an e-receipt will be issued to you once both application and payment has been made. This will be done at the earliest convenience but may take 2-3 working days to process.
The cost of the college coach:
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.
Henley College departures:
Coaches will depart The Henley College at 16.15 along Deanfield Avenue (with the exception of the OX1 which will wait along the Deanfield Road/Deanfield Avenue junction). Please see Coach Departures Map below for further information.
We strongly advise students arrive at their nearest bus stop at least ten minutes prior to bus departure times in the morning.
