You can pay for an annual pass by monthly direct debit (9 payments from September to May*). The deadline for direct debit applications is the last Friday in August. Free travel maybe available for low income families who meet the College criteria. Please visit our website to view College Policy: www.wsfc.ac.uk

Applications for bus passes should be made early (June/July). There is no commitment to purchase a bus pass when making an application, but this ensures the pass is received in time for the beginning of term.
