Travelling to Bridgend College

We have four campuses across Bridgend County Borough, in Bridgend, Pencoed, Queens Road and Maesteg, all of which are accessible by public transport.

Travelling to College by bus

Free or subsidised travel is provided to all students aged 16-18 who live 3 miles or more from their campus of study.

Travel passes or financial assistance is provided by the College on behalf of the following local authorities, but you should also refer to individual local authority home to school/college travel policies for further information and guidance:

  • Bridgend County Borough Council
  • Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council
  • Vale of Glamorgan County Borough Council

Our useful bus journey planner will help you plan your route to Bridgend College on one of our College contract buses.

This information is reflective of the 2022/23 academic year and is subject to change.

If you are from another local authority area, please contact our Student Services team for advice.

Students aged 19+ may be eligible to claim travel expenses for public transport routes.

Sustainable travel

We want to promote the most sustainable ways of travelling to College for students, staff and visitors. By using a sustainable travel option, we can all play our part in reducing the impact on the environment. There are lots of ways you can help, by:

Cycling

We have places on our campuses to store your bike securely if you want to cycle to College. Cycling to College will keep you fit while helping out the planet.

Walking

If you live close enough to your campus, walking can be great for your physical and mental wellbeing, as well as the environment

Car Sharing

If you live close to a student or colleague, this could help reduce your travel costs, as well as your carbon footprint.

Using Public Transport

Using public transport reduces the number of vehicles on the road whilst giving your extra time to study or relax on the way to college.

We have a Green Travel Plan which actively promotes sustainable forms of transport as well as the use of digital technology to eliminate or reduce the need for travel. As well as having environmental benefits, this can positively affect health and wellbeing.
