Transport

Lancing pupils arrive at the College daily, weekly and termly from a wide range of home locations.

There are good public transport links to Lancing and the College supplements these with a comprehensive transport service largely using its own fleet of modern minibuses.

Where feasible the College would like to encourage parents to use the bus service, not only to help alleviate potential traffic congestion on the College site at peak times, but also for the obvious environmental benefit of general traffic reduction.

We review the routes every year and the feasibility of each route is very much dependent upon the number of pupils that use the service, even though the College substantially subsidises the service.

Local Transport Schedule 

Please see below for details of the routes currently being offered. Specific pick-up/drop-off points and timings may vary due to demand - please contact us for details.

All routes operate to and from the College on Monday to Friday. The buses aim to arrive at the College by 8.10am each morning, and depart at 6.05pm in the evening.
Please note: the service on a Friday evening of an Exeat weekend leaves the College at 4.00pm.
On Saturdays, the day that Half Term starts, and on the last day of term, the morning service to College only operates.

For your information, the following should be noted:

  • Bookings are only accepted for the whole term
  • We can offer mornings only, afternoons only or both journeys
  • We offer sibling discounts
  • We can offer occasional bookings on certain routes if space allows (at a slightly higher cost per trip)
  • All transport providers used by the College use vehicles operated and maintained under current legislation, and all drivers are qualified and DBS cleared

Should you wish to use any of these minibus services, please contact the Bursary on 01273 465902. If you are interested in a route that is currently not being offered, please contact Sam Woodger, the College’s Transport Manager, to discuss your suggestions with him, by phone on 01273 465999 or email cgw@lancing.org.uk.
