College Free Bus
During term time, the College operates a FREE bus service running between the City Centre, Plymouth rail station and Kings Road (Stagecoach service 36). If you live further afield in Plymouth, Devon and Cornwall, you may be eligible for some financial assistance to help with travel costs.
Due to COVID-19, passenger numbers on buses are currently restricted. To try and limit the impact of these restrictions on students, Stagecoach will be running a second No36 bus on following the same timetable.
Please be aware, face coverings are currently mandatory for travelling on public transport, and drivers will refuse travel to those without one.
Until the end of September you can use the College free bus without showing your student ID card if you have not received it.
Driving to College
There is a student car park with limited parking spaces available. Disabled parking is located by the main entrance (for blue badge holders) and there are some designated areas for motorcycle/moped parking.
To park your car on-site, students must either purchase a parking permit (£10 per term) or pay and display on a daily basis (50p for four hours, £1 all day) until 5.00pm. You can purchase your car permit from the car park management company (TPS) via www.cityplym.ac.uk/help-advice/personal-support/travel/ and will need to include your student ID number on the application.
Please note: a permit does not guarantee you a parking space.
Charges apply for all parking spaces, including disabled spaces. Failure to have a permit or pay and display ticket on clear view will result in fines being imposed by the parking company. This also applies if you park in the staff parking areas with a student permit.
The College takes no responsibility regarding the parking charges/fines imposed by the parking company. The College encourages car sharing where possible.
Cycling to College
The College provides a number of bike storage lockers which are available to rent on an annual basis. There is also a large bike shed where you can keep your bike secure. The College accepts no responsibility for the loss or damage of your bike if you choose to use these facilities.
There are also showers and changing rooms available.
Throughout the year, the College works with local companies to provide bicycle skills and maintenance workshops and safety checks.
