Transport

We encourage travelling to the UTC via public transport.

You can order your transport pass from Network West Midlands:

Bus Pass                  Bus + Metro Pass              Bus + Metro +Train Pass

Students living outside the Network West Midlands area (e.g. Stafford, Telford, Lichfield) should select the Bus, Metro and Train pass, scroll to the bottom of the page and choose the appropriate ‘alternative ticket’ for your location.

You will also need an appropriate photocard, application forms for these are available online:

Under 16 Photocard                                         16-18 Photocard

 

Most child tickets are now available on swift card. Children can just scan and go plus the cards are more durable and replacements are easier to process.

WMUTC may support the cost of transport for students from a dedicated transport fund who fit one or more of the following criteria:

  • Looked After Children
  • Students receiving Free School Meals who live more than 3 miles from the UTC
  • Students receiving Free School Meals who live between 2 and 3 miles from the UTC
  • Students for whom the monthly cost of transport is greater than £43.00
  • Students requiring hardship support for whom the above does not apply

Note that distances noted above will be determined using Google Maps directions for a walking journey between the home postcode and the UTC postcode.

Support will only be offered up to the value of the cheapest reasonable public transport method.

Parents/Carers wishing to make a claim for transport support should purchase an annual transport pass via direct debit themselves and then submit an application for support with travel costs to the UTC. If this is a challenge parents/carers should contact the UTC immediately to arrange advance support.

Students will also be able to make use of bus services provided by the University of Wolverhampton from certain locations in Telford, Wolverhampton and Walsall.

Secure cycle storage will also be available to all students.

Parking for students attending by moped or scooter can be provided in the cycle shed.

There are no parking facilities for student cars on site.
