Information about withdrawn section of Stagecoach 613 service

The College is providing a minibus service to replace the withdrawn section of the 613 Stagecoach bus route.  You can book your place on this service by clicking on this link.

The proposed route is detailed below but this will be dependent on final student numbers.   

Journey to College     Journey from College  
Herriard, St Mary’s Church 09:15      Alton College 16:20
Bentworth, Star Inn 09:25   Beech, Wellhouse Road bus stop  
Medstead, War Memorial 09:30   Medstead, War Memorial

The cost of this service will be £225 per term and payment needs to be made online at the time of booking.  Places on this service are not guaranteed until payment has been received by the College and duly acknowledged.  Payment can either be made on a termly basis or for all three terms.  The deadline for booking a place for the Spring term is Friday 6th December 2019 to enable us to finalise the route before the start of next term. 

You'll be pleased to know that our College is just a short walk from Alton train station and the town centre. Many of the public buses stop right outside our College too, and services run throughout the academic term. 

Our address is Old Odiham Road, Alton, Hampshire GU34 2LX.

We would advise you to purchase your train ticket or bus pass as early as possible please. It can take 7 - 10 working days for train tickets to arrive at College (ready for collection on the first day of term) and up to two weeks for you to receive your bus pass (posted to your home address by Stagecoach). 

By train

For 16 and 17 year old students the new 16-17 Railcard offers a 50% discount on rail travel. For more information and to purchase please see the website here: 16-17 Saver

N.B Some of our Alton College train tickets may remain cheaper than those the 16-17 Railcard can offer, but we would strongly advise all students and parent/carers to look into the 16-17 Railcard to make their own decision on which is the most cost effective.

For 18+ year old students, and those opting not to buy the 16-17 Railcard, travelling from Farnham, Guildford, Aldershot or beyond we've agreed a discount travelling by South Western Railway. Train tickets can be bought from 12th August 2019 onwards via the Online Store

By bus

Stagecoach timetabled buses service the College. 

New timetable as of January 2020 

The Stagecoach bus service number 13 from Haslemere which used to service Oakhanger no longer follows that route. Please visit the Stagecoach website for more information on the revisions to that particular service.

Student tickets are purchased directly from the Stagecoach website. All the information you need is available on the Stagecoach website and to buy tickets.

An annual Student ticket for 2019-20 costs £720. Tickets can also be purchased termly, see the Stagecoach website for more details. The Student ticket will allow you to travel for a much cheaper cost.

Additional financial help (a partial refund) towards Stagecoach bus passes may be available to Full Time students who are aged 16-19 and live in certain postcode areas and are still enrolled on their course of study at the end of the first full term.  This is called a ‘Travel Subsidy’. If you are eligible for this, the College will contact you at the beginning of the Spring term. The subsidy is a one off payment regardless of whether you purchased a termly or an annual pass. For more information please email

Matters in relation to how the service is operated including occurrences of late running should first be directed to Stagecoach at:
Stagecoach welcomes customer comments and suggestions because it helps them to improve their services and put things right when they have gone wrong. 

By car

We've got some space for car parking for visitors, staff and students. Please read the Student Car Parking Policy before applying for your permit from the Student Hub available from 10th September. Proof of a valid driving licence and address must be shown to Student Hub staff before a parking permit will be issued.

Please don't drive to College if you can get a bus or train. 

Our College is in a residential area and parking in the streets is limited, so please park with care and respect for our neighbours.
