Transport to College

Free transport to East Riding College

Funded travel is available to all 16-18 year old learners, on full time courses, who live more than 2 miles from the nearest College site that delivers their course in 2018/19.

Funding is for the following and for timetabled College days only:

  • Travel by East Yorkshire Motor Services (EYMS) buses.
  • Travel by dedicated College services BC4 (from Withernsea), BC8 (from Gilberdyke) and the new ER1 (from Hull via Bricknell Avenue and Cottingham)
  • Travel by other public transport if EYMS or dedicated College transport is not available. Travel by other public transport will be subject to prior agreement and is reimbursed in arrears, based on attendance.

All 16-18 students applying for a full time course starting in September 2017 will be sent forms to apply for the transport to College. These are also available online and at the Beverley and Bridlington reception desks.  Travel on EYMS, BC and ER buses is by way of a prepaid personalised bus pass, including picture.

Students may have to fund their own transport if they delay applying, as funds are limited.

Support is at the discretion of the College, subject to satisfactory attendance and evidence of income.

If you are 19 or over, you may be eligible for free transport or support to pay towards travel, dependent on circumstances, please call 0345 120 0044 for more information or read about the financial support available.

Affecting all North Cave students who catch the BC8 college bus. 

Due to Yorkshire Water repairing the water mains crossing Ferry Road, South Cave Ferry Road will be closed to all traffic from Monday 22nd January. 

Due to the closure the EYMS BC8 double decker bus will not be entering North Cave as there is no area for it to turnaround.  North Cave students will be picked up by a EYMS minibus and taken to Elloughton were they will pick up the BC8.  The stop in North Cave where students can catch the minibus is the bus stop on Westgate adjacent to Beckside Close.  Due to this workaround the pickup time will be 07.15 not 07.25.

Students from North Cave will need to disembark from BC8 at Elloughton on the evening and the minibus will continue the journey to North Cave.

The repair work is expected to take 2-4 weeks.
