Travelling To Brock

Travelling to Brock

We are easily accessible by train or via our extensive bus network.

As part of our COVID response we have further reviewed the structure of the college day.

From 13/10/2020 the earlier finish at 16:00 hrs will give rail users travelling to the busiest stations access to twice the number of trains within 40 minutes of the day ending.

Also, our more compact timetable and blended learning approach has significantly reduced the cost of travel.

Travelling by bus

Our extensive bus network enables travel to Brockenhurst from Ringwood, Lymington, Bournemouth, Christchurch, Wimborne, Salisbury, Fordingbridge, Totton and the Waterside, plus numerous towns and villages in between.

For 2020/21 we are offering subsidised, fixed rate, half termly (HT) passes. HT4 (08/03/21 – 01/04/21) passes are available for purchase via Brock Shop online, and learners eligible for the Discretionary Bursary can receive a further 50% discount.

The 2020/21 bus costs can be found below. Our half-termly passes are also valid for travel on the Blue Star 6, 8 & 9 and the More Bus X1/X2, X3 & X6 public services (NB: college passes are not purchasable for use exclusively on public services). An addition, lunchtime service (the C16) operates to and from Ringwood.

Go South Coast and Brockenhurst College will continue to ensure all safety guidelines are followed. Please follow on-bus guidance and ensure you wear a face covering while travelling. Daily single and return fares are available on our buses (excepting C16 & C27) with contactless payment preferred.

The 2020/21 bus timetables can be found in the useful downloads section below – for more details please email travel@brock.ac.uk

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).

*16-17 Saver Railcard*

While we previously sold termly rail passes, these discounted season passes were priced by South Western Railway on seven-day per week validity and would not be cost effective with our compact Covid timetable.

Travelling to Marchwood

The C27 connecting shuttle from Totton train station has replaced the 483 service that previously operated from Brockenhurst to Marchwood.

The C27’s 0820 hrs departure from Totton coincides with rail arrivals from the wider Bournemouth and Southampton areas. The route also serves Rushington and Hounsdown.

Learners travelling from the Hythe and Waterside area can use the BlueStar 8 and/or 9 public services to access Marchwood village.

The shuttle timetable is included with the main campus bus timetables. Please email travel@brock.ac.uk for recommendations as to which trains offer the fastest journey.
