The Exeter College travel scheme offers subsidised travel by either bus or rail. Students must choose from one of the three options below.
1. Travel by Stagecoach Bus
Exeter College has partnered with Stagecoach to provide subsidised bus travel for eligible Exeter College students. Students who meet the above criteria are entitled to purchase a Stagecoach Termrider at a significantly reduced rate.
A Stagecoach Termrider allows for unrestricted travel on Stagecoach services within a designated area of Devon for the entire college term, including weekends and holidays*. The price of your ticket depends on which of three zones you’re travelling within. The zone your ticket covers will be assigned based on your post code. The boundaries of these zones can be found here: www.stagecoachbus.com/promos-and-offers/south-west/termrider
Below are the prices for each zone with and without the Exeter College subsidy:
