Student wearing facemask on bus

As part of our commitment to make travel as easy as possible for our students, Shrewsbury Colleges Group has arranged for extra bus capacity from Telford to accommodate the high demand for its courses.

Shrewsbury Colleges Group is pleased to announce that, through working with Arriva Bus, there will be additional capacity on the X5 route effective from Monday 4 October 2021.

Due to the large number of students travelling to the three campuses of the college, the existing buses have seen capacity issues, especially in the mornings. However, Arriva has now transferred a double-decker bus from another service in order to accommodate the students travelling to college.

Catherine Armstrong, Group Vice Principal Curriculum Support & Business Development commented; ‘We are delighted that Arriva has been able to provide the extra capacity for this busy bus route. We have a significant number of students travelling from Telford and having the double-decker bus means that we will be able to provide them with a better service’
