On this map the blue lines show the corridors along which transport will operate but not necessarily the exact bus route, particularly near urban areas. You can find out the exact route by contacting Traveline (0871 200 22 33) or by visiting an operator’s website. The pink line shows the outer limit of the core route area. The black lines indicate extensions to the core routes funded by the College.
To apply for transport please go to apply online for post 16 transport.
For 2018/19, passes cost £357 per year and are for Monday to Friday use only during term time. Instalment options are available at £119 per term, or £59.50 per half-term.

If you are in receipt of one of the qualifying benefits then transport will be free but you must send valid proof the benefit to Travel & Transport Services with your application. You must also apply for East Norfolk Sixth Form College’s Discretionary Fund. Please go to www.eastnorfolk.ac.uk and fill in an application form which needs to be returned to the College along with the proof.
