Getting Here

We are on a brand new multi-million pound site in Scarborough, with easy transport links.

How to get to Scarborough UTC

Scarborough UTC has its own fleet of mini-buses, as well as contracted coach services, to provide morning and evening transport for students travelling from further afield.  Buses run Monday to Friday during term time, arriving at college for 08:40 and departing at 16:00.

For the 2019/20 academic year, transport will continue to be free to all students, with charges being introduced from 2020/21.

We currently operate routes from:

  •  Bridlington
  •  Driffield
  •  Malton
  •  Whitby

Each route has various pick-up points, with routes reviewed on an annual basis to accommodate each new cohort of students.  Due to demand for places we can only offer one choice of route per child.

Each student will be asked to adhere to the Behaviour on College Buses policy when using college transport, and failure to do so may result in transport provision being removed.

The college encourages local students to walk, cycle and use public transport on their journey whenever possible.  For parents who do wish to drop their child off by car, please note there is no waiting area on-site for cars and that Ashburn Road operates double-yellow lines, therefore we would ask that parents take consideration when dropping off and collecting your child, and be mindful of other road users.  The college does have a number of disabled parking bays and we would ask that these remain clear for those who do need them.

Cycling

Cycling is one of the easiest ways to fit exercise into your daily routine, but it is also a form of transport. It can save you money, keep you fit and help the environment.

Public Transport

  • You can get 20% off most local bus fares with the East Yorkshire Motor Service student discount card.
  • If you make the same journey by train more than three or four times a week you may find that, on the majority of routes, season tickets offer better value for money compared to buying daily tickets.
  • The 16-25 Railcard gives you 1/3 off most rail fares throughout Great Britain, including all Standard and First Class Advance fares. To be eligible for a 16-25 Railcard you must be 16-25, or a mature student – 26 years or older and in full-time study respectively
