Direct Yeovil College Buses YC1, YC2 & YC3

Recognising the travel challenges in South Somerset and understanding that some students find it extremely difficult to reach post-16 education, we are committed to addressing this issue and in doing so providing our students and future students with the education that they deserve.

Our fleet of direct buses to and from Yeovil College are proving extremely popular, and we aren’t stopping there. There are many plans to expand our current network, ensuing students from far and wide can access Somerset’s top performing College.*

Yeovil College operates the YC1, YC2 and YC3 services through South West Coaches. If you live in or around:

  • Gillingham
  • Shaftesbury
  • Wincanton
  • Castle Cary

Or if you can reach the pick-up point easily, then our direct fleet might be your best, most convenient and cheapest option.

The service is a ‘ticket holder only’ service and the cost is less than half the price of a County ticket per year. Click here to apply.
