Getting to college

Information for students about getting to Vision West Nottinghamshire College, including the college bus service and public transport options.

College bus service

Getting to college couldn’t be easier. The college bus service runs to all our campuses and covers 12 routes across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, with various pick-up points along the way.

The service costs £100 per student per year, but some students will be eligible to use the service for free.

Find out more and view a full list of bus routes, pick-up points and timetables by visiting the college bus services page.

Other transport options

  • Bicycle
    Come to college by bicycle. Our college sites include areas to safely store your bike.
  • Car
    Parking is available at each college site to students, staff and visitors, although it does fill up quickly. Why not use the college bus service? It’s a greener, and more convenient way to get to each site.
  • Public transport

    As well as the college bus service, public bus services are available across the county:

    Trent and Barton ‘pronto’ bus service runs to and from Nottingham, with stops directly outside our Derby Road campus, and Stagecoach services are available across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. Visit for more information.

    Regular train services run to Mansfield Train Station and Sutton Parkway (ideally located for the Construction Centre and Engineering Innovation Centre). For more information, visit
