Student Bus Service – NEW FOR 2020

We are offering three new bus routes to help you get to College in 2020.

Booking your place

If you would like to take advantage of the three new bus routes to Rotherham College or Dearne Valley College you can book your place via this link.

If you are a progressing learner from Dinnington Campus, please just turn up at your preferred pick-up location and get on the bus. The driver will take your name and you will not be charged for the journey.

For more information on how to book a place on one of our buses, see our step-by-step booking guide via this link.

The three routes are:

Dinnington – Woodsetts – North Anston – South Anston – Wales – Rotherham College – Dearne Valley College
Killamarsh – Southall – Swallownest – Woodhouse – Richmond – Birley – Manor Castle – Arbourthorne – Rotherham College – Dearne Valley College
Retford Bus Station – Worksop Bus Station – Carlton – Oldcoates – Maltby – Wickersley – Thrybergh – Dearne Valley College

A small charge of £1.50 per day will be charged to all students except those students who are progressing into their second year from Rotherham College’s Dinnington Campus and are moving to Dearne Valley College.

Each route will run first thing in the morning to get you into College in time for your first lesson and will return at the end of the College day (timetables are below).

You may be eligible for funding to pay for your journey to and from College, please visit our Financial Help page for more information.
