Unless you have access to a car, you'll need to think about using public transport while you're in Bournemouth. Indeed, even if you do have access to a car, parking is not easy in the town centre and can be very expensive.
If you live with one of our homestay hosts, you will need to use public transport to travel to and from the school.
Even if you live in the town centre, it is likely that you will want to use Yellow Buses to travel around the region.
The good news is that Bournemouth is served by two very good bus services, and we can even help you reduce the cost of your tickets with travel cards.
The main service in and around Bournemouth is provided by Yellow Buses. These buses are frequent and reliable, and service the most popular student accommodation areas.
If you think you will be using Yellow Buses frequently, you can save money with a travel card. The school has these cards available, and they give you discounted travel on any Yellow Bus, all day, every day.
Wilts and Dorset's more bus service Bournemouth and Poole, as well as Christchurch and other more rural areas to the west of Bournemouth.
We can also help you with discounts on these routes; just ask in the office for a 7-day or 21-day travel card.
Both bus services do run a night bus service; this can be useful for getting home after the pubs and clubs. Make sure you understand the services that are available; check the times and destinations carefully so that you know when you need to leave for home.
There are many local ports and airports that you can use; we offer a guide to them all.
We can organise a service to bring you from the airport to Bournemouth, and to take you back again.
