Travelling to College
Godalming College encourages students to use alternative modes of travel and is working with local transport operators to give students more convenient access to services. By doing this we also aim to reduce the amount of traffic to promote a greener environment.
We endeavour to keep this page as up to date as possible but transport operators are within their rights to alter any of these services, you are therefore advised to check details about transport before making a purchase.
Students living in Surrey and aged 16-18 can purchase an annual fare card. This offers reduced fares on train and/or bus travel for journeys to and from college, visit www.surreycc.gov.uk/roads-and-transport
