Student Transport Routes

To help students reach college a network of subsidised minibuses and coaches is organised, offering transport to students from most parts of Northamptonshire and some parts of neighbouring counties. Routes also operate to and from the vocational skills academies for those students living within the academies’ catchment areas.

Although we cannot guarantee to collect students from all locations, we endeavour to devise routes that are accessible to as many people as possible, with a wide range of pick-up points.
