Student Transport

Student Transport

At St Mary’s College we offer a number of direct service buses for all 16-19 students to ensure a safe and reliable journey into College. These operate twice daily, i.e. in time for the start and finish of the College day (valid for term-time only) in association with Moving People and costs only £25 per term.

SMC DIRECT BUS SERVICES

All students using college transport must have their ID badges displayed on them to travel on the bus. Students will not be allowed to travel on the bus if they are not wearing their badge. For your safety and for the safety of others, it is now mandatory for face coverings to be worn on public transport and the dedicated College buses. These are not provided by College or Moving People. Students should bring a plastic bag to store their face covering or mask when they arrive at College
