Getting to College

Here at Huish we have a number of buses that come directly to the College, with other routes stopping just a short walk away. There is a pedestrian and cycle path at the rear of Huish which links directly to Vivary Park and the town centre.

Travelling by bus

Student getting on to a bus at the front of CollegeIMPORTANT INFORMATION: Whilst many bus services have been temporarily suspended we have had assurance from the Somerset County Council that buses for all students travelling to College will be running from September 2020. They will shortly be confirming the details of routes and timetables and further information will be released as we know more.

Ticket prices:
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Somerset County Council will not be offering the County Ticket scheme for the 2020/21 academic year. Due to potential social distancing measures and possible changes to the level of College attendance required from September 2020, an annual pre-paid ticket is not the most viable option.

All bus operators offer a range of daily tickets and most can offer types of season tickets at a discounted rate. We strongly advise you to check your options with the various bus operators to ensure you are aware of the most appropriate ticket for your individual needs.
