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.

All Brockenhurst bus passes are valid on BlueStar 6, 8 & 9 and certain MoreBus services allowing for flexible travel to and from college during term time (time restrictions apply) and the Ringwood area is serviced by an additional lunchtime bus service (£2.00 charge).

For 2016/17 two new network bolt-on products are available permitting evening, weekend and out-of-term travel on all BlueStar, Salisbury Reds and MoreBus services – please refer to the ‘16/17 Travel Information’ guide below or email travel@brock.ac.uk for more information.

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.
