Student Bus Travel for Cirencester College Students 

Changes to buses from Monday 2nd November

We're making changes to some routes and times from Monday 2nd November.

With most students now on new timetable plans, we need to make a few changes to meet a reduced demand for our morning and afternoon buses.  We've added extra lunchtime trips on several routes since the start of Term - these will continue to run for the foreseeable future.

From Swindon and the south: 

  • 803 will now start in Liddington, Wanborough and Lower Stratton before running through Moredon and Abbey Meads.
  • 804 is replaced by 803 in Liddington, Wanborough and Lower Stratton.  Students in Lower Stratton and Kingsdown may prefer to travel on 805 for a faster bus to College.
  • 806 will pick up earlier in Faringdon, Shrivenham and South Marston, then run via Highworth Swindon Street and Blunsdon.
  • 808 is replaced by 806.  Students in Highworth should board in Swindon Street or Cricklade Road as we'll no longer call at St Michaels Avenue, Grove Hill or Roundhills Mead.  This change is to minimise journey time for students further along the route.
  • 857 replaces 803 at stops in Rodbourne and picks up earlier in Moredon, Redhouse, Tadpole Garden Village and St Andrews Ridge.
  • 51X will start inside the College Grounds for return trips to Swindon and will not pick up in the town centre or Chesterton Lane.
  • Lunchtime buses will continue on 802, 805, 857   and 51X as well as every hour on 51.  These buses connect to public routes around Swindon to help students from other destinations.

There are no changes to our start or end of day buses from Stroud or the north.  Our lunchtime 852 will leave Merrywalks 5 minutes earlier at 1155, with the return departing College one hour earlier at 1235 (not 1330 from the town centre).   We'll still run lunchtime buses on 861 and 866 for other students travelling in the middle of the day.
