Travelling by bus
Our extensive bus network covers Ringwood, Verwood, Lymington, Bournemouth, Christchurch, Wimborne, Salisbury, Fordingbridge, Totton and the Waterside, plus numerous towns and villages in between.
For 2021/22 we offered subsidised bus passes on both a full academic year (i.e. 06/09/2021 – 07/07/2022) and period-specific (e.g. 25/04/2022 – 17/05/2022) basis. An ‘early bird’ discount applied to purchases pre-01/09/2021 and daily single/return fares are available on our buses (excepting C16 & C27).
2022/23 bus passes will be available for purchase via our online Brock Shop from early August 2022 and students eligible for the Discretionary Bursary will receive a further 50% discount. The latest bus timetables and current pass pricing can be found in the 2021/22 Travel Information section below (indicative only for 2022/23).
Travelling by train
We recommend students under 18 obtain the new 16-17 Railcard. This railcard was introduced for 2019, costs just £30 per year, and affords a 50% discount on most ticket types (including singles, returns and season tickets).
Season tickets purchased before the 16-17 Saver expires may be valid for up to 4 months after the passenger’s 18th birthday – students turning 18 during the academic year should consider buying a discounted season pass prior to turning 18.
18+ students eligible for the 2022/23 Discretionary Bursary may receive a 50% contribution towards rail fares. Students eligible for either the 16-18 Vulnerable Bursary or 19+ Bursary may receive a 100% contribution towards rail fares.
The 16-25 Railcard has fare and travel time restrictions and may not be suitable for all timetables/journeys. We recommend you do not purchase without first fully investigating its usefulness.
Walking between the station and the College takes just 7 minutes
Travelling to Marchwood
Our C27 bus operates direct from Totton train station to our Construction & Marine Technologies Training Centre in the Marchwood Industrial Park.
The C27’s 0827 hrs departure from Totton coincides with current (reviewed periodically) rail arrivals from the wider Bournemouth and Southampton areas and students travelling from the Hythe and Waterside area can use the BlueStar 8 and/or 9 public services to access Marchwood village (a c. 7-minute walk to the Centre)
