Frequently Asked Questions

How can I reduce costs to my travel?

Consider buying a young persons railcard for 30% discounts on off peak fares. Certain councils/boroughs offer discounted travel cards. Please enquire with your local office for more information.

Should I buy returns or season passes?

Season passes e.g. monthly or yearly travel cards are often cheaper. Please ask your ticket agent for advice.

I drive, can I still save money?

You could consider trying a car pool scheme where a group of friends share the driving.

I travel from London, what should I do?

You can apply for an Oyster 17/18 card that will give you free bus travel and child rate train / tube travel. It may be cheapest for you to split your travel between using an Oyster and an ordinary ticket. For example, using your Oyster card from London Zones to Feltham and then buying an ordinary ticket from Feltham to Egham.

I am struggling with travel costs- can you help me?

Yes, we may be able to help. Please come up to Student Services or email welfare@strodes.ac.uk. We do have a travel bursary to help eligible students. For the 8 bus service, First in Berkshire offer a Scholar Ticket that gives young people in education discounted travel.

Financial Support for Travel

Students may be able to apply for support with travel costs through one of our bursary schemes. More information is available on our website or via Moodle for existing students. To request an application pack or to discuss eligibility, please email welfare@strodes.ac.uk, call 01784 228676 ext. 1277 or come to Student Services to talk to the Student Services Officer (Welfare).
