College Transport Guidelines

We need to receive the first payment towards transport by the 25 August 2023. You will not be able to collect a temporary pass for the first week of term at enrolment, if your payments are not up to date and therefore will not be able to use transport until this is corrected and you have received your pass.

For Transport application queries or Transport queries in general please contact or call 01604 491131 Option 4

Induction Week Travel pass

This will only cover the first 2 weeks of induction 11 September – 22 September 2023.

As part of the student induction we will issue a valid student ID with a special transport holographic sticker to all those that have paid for term 1. This pass will need to be shown every time the student boards the bus and failure to do so will result in a denial of service.

Replacement cards can be issued from the Learning Resource Centre on main site, Moulton. In order for the student to travel throughout the year, payment needs to be in place before the start of the new term.

Entitled students will then collect a new Term 2 / Term 3 holographic sticker that will entitle travel.

We will text you updates with regards all of these dates to ensure everything runs smoothly.

Code of Conduct for Students using College Transport

If a driver has any suspicion that a student using the College Transport system is not abiding by this Code of Conduct, they will make their way to the nearest police station and the culprits will be removed from the bus.

Students must:

  • Be at the pick up point at least ten minutes before the stated time
  • Be on time for the return buses which leave from Gate 3 Holcot site at 3.45pm on Monday and 4.50pm on Tuesday - Friday.
  • Should the bus be late for any reason, students are asked to wait 30 minutes before calling the Transport Department
  • Wear a seatbelt at all times if provided
  • Behave in a reasonable manner particularly towards others at all times
  • Report unacceptable behaviour and/or bullying to the Transport Manager in writing. Your complaint will be dealt with sympathetically and in the strictest confidence.

Students must not:

  • Smoke, drink or carry alcohol or weapons at any time
  • Wilfully damage vehicles or their contents or interfere with anything that may compromise the health and safety of the vehicle or others
  • Carry knives and other sharp objects unless required for curriculum based activity. If carried these must be kept secure and covered up in a suitable bag/holder at all times.

If you miss the bus because of your own actions, it is your own responsibility to get home. Students going on visits / sports fixtures, who use College transport, must make their lecturer aware in advance. If a student arrives back at the College after 4:50 pm, because of a delay on the visit, the member of staff accompanying the visit will make arrangements to get students home.

Moulton College works in partnership with NCC to provide a comprehensive network of coaches, mini-buses and in assessed and agreed cases taxi’s. Whilst the College does not have a legal responsibility for transporting students to College, we do try to operate a bus network from most parts of the County and beyond to help students access the College’s courses wherever possible. The service by its nature is operated for the benefit of the majority and is heavily subsidised by the College in order to make the service available.

For those students who do not wish to take advantage of the network, the NCC policy and other support options can be researched via this link.
