There are two ways of getting to College by bus; subsidised College buses and normal public transport (with the possibility of a subsidised metro card).


College Buses – Application form 1 (click here to download)

Students can use college buses if they have a valid bus pass and there are two types of college bus pass; a prepaid bus pass or a hop on/hop off bus pass. College buses are specifically contracted services for the use of HNC students only, with one service each day to and from the college.  Areas covered by these services include Halifax, Hebden Bridge, Brighouse, Holme Valley, Dewsbury, Mirfield, Batley and Spen Valley. 

If you qualify for the bursary fund, then financial help may be available to assist with the cost of this option.

There will be buses for each route to College in the morning, and buses for each route from college in the afternoon. To find a bus route and pick up times for your area, please visit the bus map on the website. Bus timetables reflect the teaching timetable that HNC operates,
