Bus passes 

We work closely with the local authorities and the bus companies to provide appropriate transport facilities and regular buses to Coleg Gwent campuses.  Through these partnerships we offer a Bus Pass Scheme which will entitle you to discounted travel to and from college (rates below) and to child travel rates during evenings, weekends and holidays (excluding summer holidays). 

The costs are for the Academic year 14/15 and are subject to change.
