    Thanks sooo much :-) 😆
    Would the bus take you to Buxton Interchange and is that far from the campus. Also could you buy a cheaper bus ticket with your student card. Thanks again joined up 👍

    That bus goes to the Buxton train station according to http://www.derbysbus.info/images/buxton.pdf and the train station is 5 minutes walk from the main dome according to me

    also this might help you planning a journey http://www.derbysbus.info/maps/county.htm dunno about any discounts - ask someone when you're there.

    You do get some free travel when enrolled (and have an ID badge) but only on certain busses. It's the
    Trans Peak Buxton to Derby City Centre route and
    185/186 Buxton to Harpur Hill route.

    You get a full information about this in your enrolement pack (A4 clear folder, with your name and course etc sticker on it. Also, when you get your ID badge check you have a green bus symbol on it near your name, you need one if you plan to use these, and I went back and got one put on anyway just in case.

    If your still thinking of using a train then there is the 16-25 railcard which gives you 1/3 off most journeys, but i think from earlier posts you are now planning to use a bus.

    Thanks sooo much, I decided to catch the train. Found out the buses come every two hours. The earliest bus to Buxton is 9.25.

    Car sharing is better and cheaper alternative. Just need to find out if anyone is driving from sheff to Buxton campus. 😆
