Selby College has reviewed its transport charges from September 2018.
Bursary and Transport at College
For some students aged 16-18 from households with a gross income of less than £27,500 per annum, your son or daughter will be eligible for a Bursary, which means they will be able to travel to college free of charge. The Bursary also provides assistance with meals, necessary equipment and trips. For more details of the College Bursary, please contact Student Services Tel 01757 211040 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Arriva Service Buses
The charges for our exclusive Selby College Arriva Service Bus arrangements are the equivalent of £47.50 per half term, which equates to £1.58 per day; this offers the added advantage to your son or daughter that they have flexible travel and can use their Arriva tickets to travel throughout the daytime, in the evening and at weekends depending on the timetabled services available on any Arriva bus across Yorkshire.
Arriva Selby College Student Tickets
This is a special deal negotiated with Arriva exclusively for Selby College full time students. Any full time student can buy a ticket.
The tickets are valid for travel on any Arriva bus across Yorkshire, at any time of day or evening, including weekends during term time. The only time they are not valid is during college holidays.
To travel using the ticket, as well as a valid ticket you MUST show your Selby College Student ID card which will be issued when you start college. If you don’t have your ID, you will not be allowed to use the student ticket.
The tickets are sold through the Arriva website: www.arrivabus.co.uk/selbycollege on a monthly direct debit basis and are issued as a reusable smart card posted direct to you by Arriva.
Note - this is a ticket, not a pass. You are responsible for this ticket. If you lose the ticket, you can buy a replacement but you will pay £5.
Contract Buses/ College Minibuses
In light of the reductions and in some cases, overall withdrawal of local authorities providing subsidised transport for the students, Selby College has taken the decision to provide its own subsidy and has decided to charge £285 per annum for any 16-18 year old students travelling to college via either a contract bus or one of the College minibuses from September. This charge can be paid in full, termly or by monthly direct debit.
We fully appreciate the cost of transport is expensive and have therefore agreed to charge for only one ticket, where families have two or more siblings attending full-time Further Education at Selby College.
If you have any queries or special requests regarding transport or are unsure how your son or daughter would be able to access Selby College, please do not hesitate to contact our Student Services Department, who can discuss the range of travel options Tel 01757 211040 or email email@example.com.
