Welcome to Arriva services to Central Bedfordshire Colleges

Whether you’re starting out as a student or heading back for another year it makes sense to get your travel sorted now. Our range of student bus tickets makes getting around cheap and easy, and there is a choice of ways to buy, ways to pay and ways to have it delivered.

Arriva Student Saver tickets can save you heaps of money off standard adult fares*.

And you can travel in the evening and at weekends too, as many times as you like!

So, choose the ticket zone that covers your journeys between your accommodation and lectures, the library, the pub, the shops and, well, anywhere you fancy, really, and Get Your Ride On! 

* based on equivalent adult 4-Weekly Saver ticket prices across the UK
