Routes 3, 6, 7 and 8                 12.40pm

Departure times are approximate so please arrive at the pick-up point a few minutes before the advertised time as travel conditions can vary. Morning pick-up times are designed to enable coaches to normally arrive at York College prior to the start of timetabled lessons.

York College provides information on journey times in good faith, however, in the event of a breakdown, traffic congestion or any other incidents beyond the reasonable control of the college or coach companies operating the routes, departure times may be affected and journeys may take longer than predicted; in these circumstances the college will not be liable for any delays.

Coaches leave from the bus lane at the front of the college, following the reverse of the morning route, times to be confirmed for 2017/2018.

Coaches may arrive at different times according to traffic conditions – look out for the route number in the window.

Special arrangements may apply during exam periods.

Buying Tickets

Coach tickets are required for those travelling on the college subsidised transport, with the exception of the first day of your course, when the journey to college is free. Tickets must be handed to the driver when boarding the coach - our drivers do not accept cash. A ticket is required for each one-way journey, meaning payment is only made for the journeys you use.

Tickets must be purchased in advance of travelling, from either the York College Ticket Kiosk outside the Alan Ayckbourn Theatre in the Atrium (anytime) or the Finance Desk in the InfoZone (8.30am - 5.00pm). Larger quantities of tickets can be purchased in advance from either of these outlets or by calling the Finance Team on 01904 770495 and making payment by credit/ debit card. For telephone purchases you can collect tickets from the Finance Desk on production of a valid York College Student ID Card. Please note: coach tickets are non-refundable.

Health and Safety

All vehicles are fitted with lap belts, which must be worn at all times. The student code of conduct applies and inappropriate behaviour will be dealt with under college disciplinary procedures; any students with concerns are encouraged to report details to their tutor or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
