For those aged 16-18 years old and enrolled on a full-time course, East Berkshire College offers fantastic travel schemes in association with transport providers to help you save money on your travel costs.
The College now offers a reduced fare train card in association with First Great Western to enable our students to save up to 50% on their rail travel. The train pass will entitle eligible students to child fares on Great Western Rail train lines between Hanwell and Reading, including Southall, Maidenhead, Marlow, Windsor and Slough.
The part-subsidised card costs students just £25 per term (or £75 per year). However, those from low income households may be eligible for financial support to further reduce this cost.
