The College has a dedicated bus service that runs from Thatcham to the campus in Monks Lane. This is operated by Newbury and District. Buses run Monday to Friday during term-time only. There is a charge for this service.

Tickets will be available on the Kennections (soon to be rebranded as Newbury & District) app, so simply download this from the Google Play or Apple App store, head to 'mobile tickets' and select the 'Newbury College' option. The singles and returns will also be available to buy on-bus, direct from the driver, either using exact change or via contactless bank card.

You’ll need to activate your ticket after you’ve bought it, but we recommend doing this only when it’s needed, so if you’re buying a single ticket, wait until you’re ready to board the bus, or if you’ve bought a season ticket, activate it the first day that it’s needed. The bus company are working hard to get these tickets ready for the start of term, but they may not be on the app the first time you check.
Fares

The following fares are for use only on the Newbury College Shuttle service. However, as we know that some of you finish earlier in the day before the shuttle departs, they can also be used on the Newbury & District 103 service when boarding at the College only.

Network+ Shuttle We know that some of you may be travelling from further afield, so we’ve also introduced a range of Network+ Shuttle fares to allow transfers from other services. These tickets are valid within the Reading Buses simplyNetwork zone. Within Newbury, this means you can travel on the 1a and 1c, and 103 services, as well as the jet black 1 and other Reading Buses services. However, these tickets are not valid on other Newbury & District services.
