If you require travel to Andover College and there is no public service from your area to get you to the College, it may be possible for the College to subsidise a Campus service from your area. This will be dependent on student numbers and financial viability. It is important to register your interest when you receive the link to the online registration system. Areas previously covered include The Wallops, The Winterbournes, Tytherley and Upavon.
We endeavour to cover as many areas as possible, however we cannot guarantee a service will operate. It is vital for scheduling purposes that interest is expressed before the travel deadline.
If a public service travel pass is ordered before the deadline you will usually be able to collect this on the first day of term. Unfortunately, if you ordered after the deadline there may be a delay receiving any passes and you will be sent a text when your pass is ready for collection.
Please note you will have to pay for any travel service until your pass arrives.
