A guide to travel costs for the current academic year is available as a PDF below and annual and termly passes are purchased via the online BrockShop with instalment plans available.  Information regarding travel costs for the 2016/17 academic year will be available online from June 2016.

2015/16 applicants and continuing students transferring from Totton will receive additional support from the Education Funding Agency in respect of travel costs.  If you would like to be added to the mailing list for EFA/Totton updates please email travel@brock.ac.uk.

Travelling by bus

The extensive College bus network enables students to travel from Lymington, Christchurch, Wimborne, Ringwood, Fordingbridge, Totton, The Waterside, Romsey and Salisbury plus numerous other towns and villages and for 2015/16 the C7 service has been introduced with new stops in Testwood, Totton, Eastleigh & Chandlers Ford.

For all college buses, students must have either an official Brockenhurst KeyCard or a temporary pass (available from the BrockShop during opening hours).  If they have neither, students will be asked to pay the standard cash fare for that service (payable to the driver) or to arrange alternative transport.

The Ringwood and Waterside areas are serviced by an additional lunchtime bus service (£2.00 charge).

Brockenhurst bus passes are valid on BlueStar 6, 8 & 9 and various MoreBus services allowing for flexible travel to and from college during term time (time restrictions apply).  For 2015/16 a network bolt-on product is available permitting evening, weekend and out-of-term travel on all BlueStar, Salisbury Reds and MoreBus services – please email travel@brock.ac.uk for more information.

Brockenhurst Bus Route & Timetable Revisions May 2016 - July 2016

Due to low passengers numbers on the C8, C9 & C10 services, the College will be amalgamating these routes for the period May 3rd – July 6th 2016 (end of the 2015/16 academic year).  The revised C8 & C10 services will continue to provide access to/from all areas previously covered by the C9 and steps have been taken to minimise the impact on bus timetables.

The Waterside C3 service was retained (subject to requirement) for 2015/16 to act as a relief preventing overcrowding on the C1, C2 & C5. Passenger numbers on these services have dropped and C3 will therefore cease operation at the end of service on the 29th April 2016. The C3 may be reintroduced for September 2016/17.

Congestion resulting from traffic/incidents on the M3/M27 & Salisbury Road have on occasion resulted in the C7 arriving at College later than scheduled.  In an attempt to mitigate this, the C7’s timetable will be adjusted with its first (and all subsequent) pick-up 10 minutes earlier.  This revision will come into effect May 3rd

The revised timetables can be found below and detailed information regarding these revisions is available here.

Travelling by train

The South West Trains network covers stations from Poole, Bournemouth, Hinton Admiral, Christchurch, Weymouth, Totton, Southampton, Ashurst, Lymington, Wareham, Winchester and many more.

Students travelling by train must have their rail ID photocard and college issues scholars pass (or a valid daily ticket) at all times.  Regular checks are carried out on the trains and at Brockenhurst and other stations on our route. Please note that our train passes are “Scholars Passes” and can only be used during the standard college term dates (from 6th September for the beginning of the term) and times.

We can also provide a Link pass that enables Students to use a bus to connect them with a main College bus route or railway station.

Walking between Brockenhurst Train Station and the College takes just 7 minutes!

Other travel methods

Car parking permits can be purchased online from the Brock Shop. An annual permit costs from £20. Students must certify that they are in possession of valid insurance and MOT documents. Cars parked without a valid permit are likely to be clamped.

All student car drivers should enter the site via the main College entrance and leave via North Road.

2016/17 prices are subject to confirmation and intended as a guide only at this time.  If eligible for the discretionary bursary please refer to ‘(DB)’ versions.
