    Damn. Although buying mine seperately it probably accumulates to something similar, given my bus pass is £700 a year

    Basically the ability to get to and from school, one bus goes past my stop one bus back. One bus goes past at 8:15, one leaves college at 4:30. What does yours entitle you to? And how far away is your college from where you get picked up?

    Well I'm going to be paying just under £900 across the year in train fares, and that's with a 16-25 Railcard... My Sixth Form College is 10 miles away.

    EDIT: I might look at bus fares now actually. I just prefer getting the train because it's quicker and I enjoy getting on trains...

    £615 gets unlimited annual travel in Hampshire, Surrey and West Sussex, day and night, all year including weekends and holidays! :eek:

    Although we only have one bus going past our stop at 7:50.

    Why is your ticket so expensive?

    I told my parents I'd get the driving license but not a car because none of my hoped for unis are particularly accessible by car.
