City College Travel Scheme



There's a reason we're called City College! Our campus is in the centre of Southampton, just a short walk away from shops, parks, restaurants, cafes and cinemas. Whether you are travelling to college or want to get some lunch, do some shopping or meet up with friends, everything you need is close by and if you are aged between 16 and 18 we have our own scheme to help with travel costs. 


All City College students aged 16-18 are able to purchase bus tickets at specially negotiated reduced student rates from First and Go South Coast (Bluestar).


If you are eligible for the City College Bursary your bus travel may be FREE!
