Plumpton College Transport

New timetables for 2021/22 available now! Please read all the information below before booking your ticket.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Arrow Down

As of September, all of our buses will be running at full capacity. We would still ask all students to wear face coverings while travelling. The wearing of face coverings on the Plumpton College bus service is a social and personal responsibility for those students that are not exempt. We must do everything we can to ensure a safe environment especially when social distancing is not possible. Taking this personal responsibility aims to provide increased reassurance to all students including those most vulnerable. As always, the buses remain only for Plumpton college students.

TIMETABLES

Arrow Down

We reserve the right to change timetables either temporarily or permanently, while this is usually conducted at the end of each term, roadworks and other unplanned events may cause mid-term changes.

There will be no bus service on non-teaching days including holidays, weekends, bank holidays and INSET days.
