Getting here

By bus: special College link service

Bilborough College link is a service running from Nottingham City Centre to Bilborough Sixth Form College. Its timetable is designed to fit in with start and end times of lessons and activities.

This service is available to Bilborough Sixth Form College students and staff only. The service is free of charge if you hold a Bilborough Sixth Form College bus pass or have a valid Kangaroo ticket. Alternatively single tickets can be purchased from the Student Support Team, or an annual College Link pass (£75 for the year) is also available. Regrettably, since 1 October 2012, we have not been able to accept NCT passes on this service. There is also a Derby link service that operates once daily at lunchtime (please note this is an additional service with limited spaces, available on a first come, first served basis).  For details of passes please contact Bilborough College on 0115 851 5000.
