Brockenhurst College has entered into a new bus contract with Go South Coast (GSC) operators of Morebus, Salisbury Reds and Bluestar, which will give students access to a wider bus network.

As well as a total of 28 special services a day to and from the College, spanning a 20-mile area, the new arrangements will enable students to travel on GSC services outside college hours.

This means they will be able to pursue leisure and study opportunities that require travelling significant distances at no extra cost.

In addition, the public will have access to college busses, giving them more opportunities to travel in the area.

The new contract runs for 27 months and will be renewed or extended depending on further negotiations.

Assistant Principal Dom Chapman said: “We are pleased to have established this new relationship with Go South Coast and are looking forward to the benefits for both students and the public.”

Andrew Wickham, managing director of Go South Coast, added: “We are delighted to be working in close partnership with Brockenhurst College to provide reliable and high quality bus services – not only for students here but for the community at large.”
