We’re all extremely excited about the arrival of the BOB card. Harrogate College is proud to be teaming up with Transdev to inform students of this great opportunity to access affordable travel, with a card that can be used on any service and at any time of the day!  What could be easier?

If you are aged between 11 and 18, you can travel with BOB for a discounted rate until the day before your 19th birthday. If you are a full time student who is over 19 you can travel with BOB and get a discount, but you will have to carry your college ID.
