Barton Peveril Bus Services 2020/21

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic College bus services are not currently running however services will resume for the 2020-2021 academic year.

Timetables and links to these will be available shortly. Please refer to the current year timetables as a guide to the areas we serve.

Xelabus will be providing additional off-peak services for the 2020-2021 academic year in order to work with the amended student timetables and social distancing. This means from September our X6/7, X9 and X15 will all join our popular X4 service serving Barton Peveril College.


The NEW price for a 2020-2021 academic year pass will be £350. Bus passes will be available to buy securely online via our new portal very shortly. The £350 academic year pass works out at approximately £9 per week over the academic year. This pass can also be used on all of the Xelabus network of public bus routes, including weekends and evenings.

Due to covid 19 and the reduced amount of time that students may be required to attend the college campus the bus passes have been heavily subsidised by Barton Peveril College. This level of subsidy is for the 2020-2021 academic year only due to the current circumstances. The price for an academic year pass for 2019-2020 was £640.

Bus passes are sold directly by Xelabus but due to the subsidised nature of the passes we will be unable to accept payment in instalments. Other ticket options will be available on bus such as monthly/daily however this may work out as a more expensive long term option.
