Travelling to One

How you travel to and from College can seem a little daunting, especially if it’s the first time you’ve needed to travel some distance. This page aims to provide support and guidance to help you plan your journey.

Bus

Bus Routes

Suffolk County Council Passenger Transport has developed a timetable of dedicated public transport for One students which will provide easy access for students from a wide radius. Please refer to the following website for further details - www.suffolkonboard.com

Bus

One Bus

The One Bus service is privately contracted with First Buses to provide morning and afternoon bus routes to and from the Stowmarket, Felixstowe and Stowupland, Stonham and Claydon areas.

Please find route details and scheduled timings by clicking on the links below. Please note this information is intended as a guide only and whilst every effort is made to provide accurate information, it may be necessary to make changes at short notice for operational reasons.

Part of this service includes unlimited travel on any public First Bus between your home town and Ipswich Town centre. This includes evenings, weekends and half term holidays and also the Park & Ride 800 bus between One and Ipswich Town centre.

One Bus Applications and Payment

Please submit the on-line application form (link below) to express your interest in using the One Bus service. This will help us to gauge the number of passengers and plan for the start of the new academic year in September 2022.  Further information will be sent to you individually once your application is received.

The One Bus Scheme adopts the principles of Suffolk County Council's 'Post 16 Discretionary Scheme’; involving a termly payment of £270 for the 2022/23 Academic Year.  Each ticket is issued for a daily return journey on a specific route; these are not transferrable to any other route.  The cost of the One Bus is calculated on a ‘not for profit’ basis by apportioning the full annual figure equally across Autumn, Spring & Summer terms, regardless of your leave date (if applicable) in the Summer term.

The termly fee must be paid in advance to secure your place on the One Bus.  Please note that no payment will be expected until you’ve been enrolled at the College.  Our preferred method of payment is via onecollege-shop.co.uk
