Rodbaston Transport Information

Transport to Rodbaston College could not be easier with local designated pickup points throughout the Staffordshire and South Staffordshire areas.

College Minibuses 2024/25

The college has a small number of minibuses and operates a number of local pick up routes. Please take a look at the table below to see the routes and pick up point locations.

If the route you require is operated by a college minibus, you will need to complete our application form. Once received, our transport team will advise how to make payment to book your seat. As we have limited seats on our minibuses, a seat cannot be allocated for any route until payment is received.

For some college students, transport may be fully or partially funded subject to bursary funding from the college. You can find out more information about bursaries here.

All college minibuses are fitted with tracking systems, safety belts and a college employed driver.

All routes operated by South Staffordshire College are subject to last minute changes to timings and pick up points.

If you have any questions regarding the college operated routes, please contact our Transport team on 01785 710598 or transport@southstaffs.ac.uk.
