Norwich City College and Sixth Form

You should buy your travel pass direct from the bus or train operator, as this will probably be cheaper and more flexible. Only apply to Norfolk County Council if any of the following apply to you:

  • You cannot get a pass from the operator for less than £525 per year
  • Your family is receiving one of the defined benefits and you cannot get a pass from the operator for less than £393 
  • You cannot afford to pay for the pass in full and the operator does not offer instalment payments

Applying through Norfolk County Council

If you apply to Norfolk County Council for your travel pass then you need to be travelling on a core route.

Download a map of the City College core route areas (pdf 4.06mb).

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.

Post16 travel scheme 

You will be required to pay towards any post16 transport. For post16 payment information visit cost and payment.

Travel to and from any sites other than the main campus will not be covered under the post16 travel scheme. Students should ask advice if they need travel assistance to reach off-site provision.
