Transport

Callywith College is working in partnership with Cornwall Council and Sustrans (the UK’s sustainable transport charity - www.sustrans.org.uk) to promote active, sustainable travel to College and to reduce congestion. Choosing to travel on foot or by bicycle reduces air pollution and traffic congestion, whilst saving you money and keeping you fit. Using public transport also helps reduce your carbon footprint, so check out your travel options below and play your part in making Bodmin a better place to study.

Walking & Cycling to College


Walking or cycling is a simple, environmentally friendly and free way to fit exercise into your day. The town centre is only a 10-15 minute walk or cycle away, so why not beat the traffic and give it a try? There is covered cycle storage at the campus and showers/ changing facilities are available. Dedicated traffic-free routes serving the town’s colleges are marked on the Bodmin active travel map www.cornwall.gov.uk/activetravel. Other traffic-free connections to College include the Camel trail from Padstow, Wadebridge and St Breward. www.cornwall.gov.uk/cornishway

Trains

Frequent trains serve Bodmin Parkway station with connecting buses to Bodmin. Alternatively, why not bring your bike on the train and use the cycle routes between the station and the College (approximately 25 minutes’ ride)? You’ll need to make a booking for your bike if it’s a high-speed train, otherwise the carriage of bikes is at the operator’s discretion.

Driving to College

Callywith College promotes the use of sustainable travel to get to your place of study.
