Getting to BCA

We run a subsidised transport service covering a wide area. We operate 18 routes in total and over 800 of our students use the service every day. We pick up from 10 mainline railway stations – Camberley, Reading, Slough, Maidenhead, Uxbridge, Amersham, Aylesbury, Bracknell, High Wycombe, and Hounslow – with a total of 96 stops across all routes. So even if we don’t pick up in your immediate area, you can take advantage of the rail network to connect with our transport facilities.
