Travelling by bus or train
Students are entitled to apply for a travel pass if you live more than three miles from the College.
You can apply for a bus or train pass by submitting a completed application form and cheque payment for £276 made payable to Herefordshire Council.
During the academic year 2017-18 the costs will be as follows:
- £276 for the Autumn Term.
- £276 for the Spring Term.
- £213 for the Summer Term.
Please note: you may find that, if you travel on certain routes to College, the cost could be lower than paying the above parental contribution.
You must allow up to 28 days for the provision of a travel pass and no refunds for travel expenses within that timescale will be made. Refunds are only permitted where, following full payment with the application form, the issue of the travel permit has exceeded the 28 days.
Passes are to be collected from the College following full payment each term.
Train routes to Hereford
No Autumn Term train pass can be purchased after 15th September, 2017.
No Spring Term train pass can be purchased after 5th January, 2018

A photo ID will be required when you collect your train pass. Any student provided with a train pass, must keep the photo ID card throughout the duration of College life.
