School Transport Service

Kent College Mini-bus

Kent College operates its own in-house, bespoke transport scheme for students aged 7 and above. With a fleet of school minibuses and dedicated drivers, all of whom are MIDAS accredited and have first aid training, this service offers parents peace of mind, particularly for younger passengers.

Routes currently run from Ashford, Dover, Hythe/Folkestone, Deal/Sandwich, Herne Bay/Whitstable and Charing, and we offer a shuttle service to and from both railway stations in Canterbury, as well as the bus station. We are always open to suggestions for new routes.:
